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.

Join us at the hearing to tell PSE,  "It's time to retire Colstrip!"

WHAT: Hearing on PSE's 20-year energy plan
WHEN: Friday, March 4 from 1 to 5 pm (plan to arrive around 12:30 to get settled)
WHERE:WA Utilities & Transportation Commission's Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Richard Hemstad Bldg, 1300 S. Evergreen Park Dr., Olympia | Map

Write letters to the editors!  The Right and Big Coal are going to be screaming that the sky is falling and we need to show Obama and the EPA that we have their back.  We cannot afford to let any of these rules slip their targets. Sierra Club activists, [other local allies], and you!


Let’s stand with our Canadian partners to say NO to coal exports out of Vancouver, B.C.   Please take this opportunity to tell decision makers just what you think about this broken system.  Click here to send a letter demanding a democratic process and credible impact assessments for the proposal to build a new coal port at Fraser Surrey Docks.         Read more:

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.
