One step closer to a coal-free Oregon

Posted on July 21, 2011

Another step toward finalizing the Boardman, Ore., plant’s transition off of coal was taken early this week. The Sierra Club and its co-plaintiffs (NW Energy Coalition was not a plaintiff) settled their Clean Air Act suit with plant owner Portland General Electric.

PGE Рalso a NW Energy Coalition member -agreed to a provide $2.5 million to fund habitat protection/environmental restoration projects, local clean energy projects and community air pollution reduction efforts.  We congratulate PGE, the Sierra Club and other plaintiffs for reaching this agreement and leading the region to a coal-free future.
