Governor John Kitzhaber stopped by the Future of Energy Conference at the Oregon Convention Center to introduce his 10-year energy plan for Oregon. The Governor asked the public to stand behind his "Cool Schools" Plan proposed to the legislature. He says it’s a great creator of family wage jobs that cannot be outsourced and it’s one of the best and most effective and least-cost ways to meet Oregon’s future energy needs. The Governor's plan borrows on bonds to pay local contractors to retrofit schools for energy savings. Those cost savings would be used to fund the program.
