Letter - From the April 18, 2011 issue by Joe Ross

Kudos to Lake County, Ore., for its support and promotion of renewable energy (HCN, 3/21/11). They clearly have a joint vision, a marketing strategy, and are working together in a collaborative manner. Oregon has become a national leader in the field of clean energy and sustainability. Even with tight budgets, a myriad of agencies continue to provide grant, loan and tax incentive opportunities for clean energy development.

But with increased opportunities comes increased confusion for both communities and energy entrepreneurs. Lake County is maneuvering its path much as a canoeist would on a river full of rapids. States and counties need comprehensive information, inventories and planning to maximize opportunities. I appreciate High Country News for sharing case studies in clean energy.
