No new gas-fired power plants in Oregon!

Last year, Oregon took a huge step toward our clean energy future by passing the landmark Clean Electricity and Coal Transition Act. Our two largest utilities, Portland General Electric (PGE) and Pacific Power, joined OLCV and our partners in the environmental community to pass this groundbreaking law that solidified Oregon’s standing as a leader in the fight against climate change.

But today, less than a year later, PGE is proposing huge new investments in fossil fuel infrastructure – including two natural gas power plants in Boardman, Oregon. This is simply the wrong path for Oregon – locking our state into decades of dirty, polluting fossil fuel energy.

Add your comment: Say “NO!” to new gas-fired power plants in Oregon! We are collecting comments until January 31st, 2017, and will then be submitting them to the Energy Facility Siting Council EFSC.
