Carbon and Clean Energy

Reducing our carbon footprint in the Pacific Northwest.

United States Clean Power Plan

The Environmental Protection Agency introduced the Clean Power Plan to dramatically cut carbon pollution from existing power plants across the United States. By the year 2030, emissions must be 32 percent lower than 2005 emission levels, and the states have the power to choose how they will accomplish their calculated emissions reductions targets. Click here for a state by state breakdown of the new rule.
