March 2, 2018: Puget Sound Energy - in a climate changing world what energy will you use?
Like all for-profit utilities, Puget Sound Energy is required to file an energy resource plan with the Utilities and Transportation Commission every two years outlining how it will meet future energy needs. The most recent plan doesn't sit well with those who testified at a recent public hearing. They say the plan is a blueprint to lock 1.1 million customers into decades of fossil fuels. PSE says the plan is a mandated regulatory exercise and doesn't predict what energy - coal, gas, wind, hydro – they plan to use past the mid-2020s. Martha Baskin has the story.
