Oregon Coastal Notes Newsletter—The Eagle is Landing: OPT Announces Wave Energy Buoy Deployment off Reedsport (January 2010)

Wave energy is about to become a reality off the Oregon Coast.  Some of us have expected this news for several years.  The purpose of this newsletter is to help people on the Oregon Coast understand that.  In Oregon, we are preparing a comprehensive plan, the first of its kind, for siting renewable energy facilities in the Territorial Sea in a way that protects the marine environment, our fisheries, and, other important uses of the ocean.

The ocean plan will only be as good as the information fed into the process.  So, to be totally candid, this newsletter is also a call to action.  We need many of you to share your knowledge about Oregon's ocean.  And, as we get deepter into the plannning process, your expertise will be needed again to help us understand the implications of the options facing us.

This newsletter can be downloaded below under Printable Reports.
