What's New

Our understanding of the global need to act, and the state of renewable energy policy and news are rapidly evolving in Oregon, nationally and internationally. This monthly resource will keep you up-to-date with what's new both in OREP and renwewable energy conversations from around the planet.

From local communities to national policy decisions, informed and engaged citizens will advance the transition to locally-owned and locally-generated clean renewable energy. We encourage you to check back regularly.

OREP's Vision for a sustainable, decentralized energy future:

  • A sustainable economy with family-wage, energy jobs throughout the state
  • Farmers, ranchers, tribes, and rural communities harnessing Oregon's abundant and varied renewable resources
  • Private and community ownership of solar panels across the built environment
  • Local financing of renewable energy projects keeping energy dollars recirculating in Oregon
  • Flourishing renewable energy industries across the state
  • Energy-informed voter support for renewable energy
  • A healthy environment, minimally impacted by energy production
