Coalition Responds to Posting of Oregon 10-Year Energy Plan Draft

SALEM, Ore. (June 5, 2012) -- Governor Kitzhaber today announced the public posting of Oregon’s draft 10-Year Energy Plan. A diverse coalition of environmental, clean-energy and public-interest groups is issuing the following joint response:

We thank Governor Kitzhaber for bringing Oregonians together to focus on a 10-year energy plan. A strong energy plan for Oregon requires both near-term and long-term vision and action. Oregonians are increasingly concerned about the harm climate change is causing to our environment, economy and communities; the Governor’s plan is an important opportunity to accelerate our region’s transition from a fossil-fueled past to a clean energy future. We look forward to examining the draft’s content, engaging in next steps and forging a finalized plan that squarely addresses Oregon’s challenges and seizes our clean energy opportunities.
