Oregon has started construction of three solar power projects on university campuses that will eventually generate nearly 5-megawatts of electricity.  Bob Simonton, with the Oregon University system, says because it's an outside company that's building the system.  It won't cost the schools anything to build.  The company is using a state tax credit that covers about half of the cost.  The solar panels will be built at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls, Oregon State in Corvallis and Eastern Oregon University.
