Remind PSE of the importance of clean energy | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Thank you 23rd Legislative District!

We are so fortunate, in Kitsap County, to have Senator Christine Rolfes who co-sponsored the governor’s 100 percent clean bill and sponsored the majority of orca bills that were recently signed into law. And, I’m so grateful to Representatives Drew Hansen and Sherry Appleton for voting yes on the 100 percent clean energy bill. Thank you for listening to our concerns about global warming and acting on our behalf.

The main provisions of the bill are:

• No coal-generated electricity in Washington state after 2025;

• 80 percent clean energy by 2030, with the remaining 20 percent offset with clean energy;

• 100 percent clean energy throughout Washington state by 2045; and

• Social cost of carbon must be added into all capital projects and planning. This levels the playing field for renewable energy projects.

Gov. Inslee’s 100 percent clean energy bill is being described as landmark legislation — the strongest in the nation.

Is it time to rest on our laurels? Unfortunately no. Our utilities need to hear from us.

On May 22, PSE is holding a listening session at the Bellevue Hilton, 300 112th Ave. SE in Bellevue. There will be a rally at 4 p.m. Then at 4:30 p.m. you’ll have an opportunity to let PSE VP David Mills know how important their compliance to the new 100 percent clean energy law is to you.

Washington is leading on climate. Let’s help our utilities stay on track and set an example for the world.
