Oregon homes and cars will use less fuel in the future, under a pair of executive orders issued by Governor Kate Brown this month.
One order focuses on buildings, with homes and commercial buildings ordered to be ready for solar panels, and "zero energy ready" within a few years.
The other order focuses on getting more electric vehicles on the road in just three years.
We focus on the building order; Fred Gant was connected to Earth Advantage, a pro-green-building nonprofit. Dan Jovick builds green buildings and is co-founder of Jovick Construction.
