Oregon Energy Could Be Powered By Pacific Ocean

Generated energy in Oregon could soon come from the waves of the Pacific Ocean.

The state is setting up a number of buoys along the Oregon coast in an effort to reduce the state's carbon footprint.

Officials say large energy utility companies must generate 25% of thier energy through renewable sources by the year 2025.

The final product must go through a final stage but the current models suggest that one buoy would create enough energy to power nearly 40 homes.
