Pres. Obama’s Clean Power Plan is coming to Oregon, but the state’s small businesses might already be ahead of the curve.

The plan requires that states find ways to cut down on their carbon dioxide emissions. Whether that means imposing carbon pricing, switching to natural gas or expanding the use of renewable energy is up to the state. Oregon specifically has been instructed to reduce carbon emissions by 20 percent.

The EPA hopes that with all these new plans put into effect the nation’s carbon emissions will be 32 percent lower by 2030.
