Wind Energy information for the Southern Oregon Coast.
Join us for a discussion of Offshore Wind Energy at the Curry County SOCC campus on Saturday, December 7 at 1:00 pm. Demand for clean energy is increasing rapidly. Offshore wind will supply much of it on the west coast. The most valuable section of that natural resource is along the coast of Oregon and Northern California. If pursued aggressively, Coos Bay could become a major hub for this new industry. This would result in hundreds, even thousands, of sustainable family wage jobs. This wide-ranging series of presentations will cover renewable energy & sustainability (Former Secretary of State – Bill Bradbury), offshore wind-float technology and construction (DB Western CEO – Dennis Beetham), the regional energy infrastructure and markets (Shannon Souza), development and moving forward with stakeholders (Bill Henry), community engagement (Sam Schwarz). Following the presentations there will be a question and answer session.
