Now is a critical time for the climate movement in Oregon. Right now, legislators in Salem are considering setting a limit on carbon pollution, make our energy portfolio coal free, create electric car charging networks, create jobs in renewable energy, and community solar in our state.
There are already limits on emissions in our laws, but there is no way to enforce them. The Healthy Climate bill will hold big polluters accountable for the cost of what they are dumping into our air and water. Up to this point, we are paying the costs, in the form of missed work days and medical bills from lung disease, severe allergies and asthma attacks. We pay for record-breaking wildfires and droughts that hurt family farmers and raise food prices.
A letter from ORA member and local contractor, Palmer Dobbs, about Solarize Union County. "Summer is ramping up and so is the Solarize effort. We need your help spreading the word about the Solarize Union County effort! Your voice and passion for this effort is greatly needed to encourage NE Oregon residents to take advantage of this amazing offer to Go Solar! Let’s prove that Eastern Oregonians want and deserve renewable, homegrown energy!"
