The article discusses the report "Carbon-Free Prosperity 2025," which focuses on the use of low-carbon energy sources across the U.S. The report, which was issued by research group Clean Edge, revealed that the Northwest region could become the first in the U.S. to get three-quarters of its electricity supply from low-carbon energy sources by 2025. It estimated that the clean-tech sector could create 41,000 to 63,000 jobs in Oregon and Washington by the end of the first quarter of the 21st century.
