Tellus Report

Conservation and renewable resources are primed to meet the Northwest’s growing power needs

A report from the Tellus Institute shows the Northwest can meet its growing need for electricity by increasing energy efficiency and investing in new sources of renewable power generation. Thanks to recent innovations, clean energy technologies are primed to compete with gas plants, the economic benchmark for new power generation. The results of the Tellus study cast doubt on the need for additional fossil fuel generation in the Northwest.
