  • Oregon tribes seek solutions to green energy demands

    By Kate Ramsayer
    Bend, Oregon (AP)

    By 2025, Oregon must get a quarter of its electricity from renewable resources, as required by a law passed last session by the state Legislature. On the Warm Springs Reservation, the tribes are looking at a variety of ways to tap the reservation’s resources to generate green energy, in part to meet the state’s expected need.

    There’s a new biomass plant in the permitting stage, studies on the prospects of wind power are under way, and the tribes are even considering geothermal potential on the reservation.

    I commend Oregon and the tribe for working toward renewable sources of energy. All states and native communities need to do the same.
