OREGON PASSES RENEWABLE ENERGY STANDARD>

Tuesday, May 29, 2007 - 7:00AM

The Oregon House of Representatives last week passed Senate Bill 838, the Oregon Renewable Energy Act, by a vote of 41 to 18. The legislation enacts a renewable energy standard requiring Oregon's largest utilities to obtain 25 percent of their electricity from clean, homegrown renewable energy sources by 2025. It previously passed the Oregon Senate 20-10 on April 10. The bill will now head back to the Senate for concurrence before being sent to the governor's desk where it is expected to be signed into law.
