The Energy Trust of Oregon provided $1.5 million in funding to the Oregon Institute of Technology for a solar and geothermal plant. “As Oregonians, clean energy is practically in our DNA,” said Oregon Senator Ron Wyden. “Nothing in my view epitomized that more than Oregon Tech. You’ve got here a solar, geothermal project that provides an incredible value, not just to Oregon Tech, and the students here, but also to the Basin and to the state. It creates jobs, reduces our carbon footprint and saves money. That is a trifecta, my friends, in which everybody wins.” Read more about this project here
