Do a little solar celebrating!

Good news from Oregonians for Renewable Energy Progress--the state's Solar Pilot Program will continue, thanks to passage of House Bill 2893. The bill adds 2.5 megawatts capacity to the program and extends it another year.

OREP, which for several years was a project of Alliance for Democracy, is about to "leave the nest" and become an independent not for profit group. We are delighted to see the campaign thrive, grow, and take this next step, and we'll continue to bring you news of their accomplishments, and work with them to protect gains in Oregon and expand the idea of feed-in tariffs to other states.

Check out OREP's latest newsletter here. And if you're in the Portland area, please join OREP at the Lucky Labrador, 1945 NW Quimby St., Portland, on Thursday June 6 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM for an informal happy hour. Raise a glass to renewable energy and a sustainable future!
