Public Hearing - PSE 20-year Energy Plan
The Utilities Commission
The plan, released in December, reveals that PSE intends to operate its Colstrip coal plant for another 20 years. That decision is the result of flawed math. PSE does not take into account the true cost of operating Colstrip, like the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of upgrades the plant currently needs to meet modern pollution standards! At the same time, PSE undervalues the power of renewable energy.

No More NAFTAs-Stop the TPP
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a massive “free trade agreement” that could impact nearly every aspect of our lives, from the food we eat to the air we breathe to the quality of our jobs. Despite the huge impact the agreement would have on our communities and the environment, the TPP is being negotiated in near complete secrecy.
