The Northwest must develop 6500 aMW of clean energy by 2020 to meet growing regional power demands. This is possible with conservation and investments in clean energy, as highlighted in the the "Bright Future" report released by the Northwest Energy Coalition. In fact, it is possible to meet our new power needs with a combination of wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. I sincerely hope the Northwest begins investing in these technologies while re-thinking our consumption of hydroelectric power, especially the power generated on the four lower Snake River dams, which are responsible for the bulk of endangered salmon and steelhead mortality in the Columbia/Snake basin.
