We cannot let coal stand in the way of our clean energy future.
While the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (NWPCC) is developing a plan that shows how the region can achieve a clean energy future, Portland General Electric plans to keep us locked into burning coal from Oregon’s dirty coal plant for another 30 years. We need to stand up and ask decision-makers to deliver our clean, coal-free future.
The NWPCC will hold a very important hearing regarding the energy future of the Northwest. Will you join us next Monday, September 28th and speak up at for a clean energy future at this critical hearing?
We will also have an exciting rally and teach-in beforehand where you can learn about Oregon’s Dirty Little Secret — Coal — and how you can get the NWPCC to lead us into a clean energy future. We’ll have special guest Lane County Commissioner Pete Sorenson and other speakers, pizza, a unique coal art piece, and an overview of what to expect at the hearing.

The Northwest can lead the nation in standing up to Big Coal. A strong regional plan by the NWPCC could get the Northwest off of coal by 2020 — but they need to hear your voice in Eugene to deliver!
Thanks for taking action to end our dependence on coal. See you at the event and hearing!
