Governor Jay Nixon is expected to announce "a major energy conservation measure" for Missouri Thursday morning.
Nixon is slated to speak at the Missouri Energy Summit at the University of Missouri at 8:30 a.m. He'll speak to early-bird reporters immediately following his remarks.
Nixon's Natural Resources Director Mark Templeton has a background in exploring "green markets for products and services."
During his 2008 campaign, Nixon mostly spoke in general terms about his energy policy, touting wind, solar and renewable fuels. On conservation, he said: "We have to have conservation of the energy we do have, trying to make sure we have more weatherization and more efforts for folks to be more efficient in how they use energy."
