Gov. John Kitzhaber signed three pieces of energy legislation that drew broad support.

Senate Bill 692 calls for several items ˜ battery chargers, certain exterior lights, most televisions ˜ to be subject to energy efficiency standards. SB 242 sets emissions standards on, specifically, utilities that use coal to generate electricity. And House Bill 2801 establishes energy performance scores that measure the efficiency of houses and buildings.
