Coalition Comments on PGE's IRP & Boardman 5-14-10
The NW Energy Coalition (NWEC or “Coalition”) appreciates this opportunity to
comment on Portland General’s Integrated Resource Plan, as amended (IRP or “Plan”).
Although PGE’s Plan encompasses a great number of issues, we will focus in these
comments on two central questions: (1) a request to acknowledge a preferred Action Plan
that includes the 2020 shutdown of Boardman; and, (2) a related request to approve an
“alternative Action Plan” if the Company is unable to resolve several difficult regulatory
contingencies by March 31, 2011, making the preferred plan, in PGE’s determination, impossible to complete.
