Aurora Janke, Attorney, Earthjustice: “BPA’s proposed decision refuses to eliminate an unreasonable duplicate charge that has left nearly 200 MW of BPA’s transmission capacity unused since it was developed in the 1980s. This proposed decision is inconsistent with sound business principles and discriminates against Montana renewable resources seeking to supply energy to the Pacific Northwest.”
Isaac Moriwake, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “The ruling essentially says ‘go forward on renewable energy, but the roadmap and the destination will be determined later.’ [Making decisions] as we go doesn’t mean we don’t get to the goal of 100% renewables—but it could mean more work and more costs.”
Chris Amato, Attorney, Earthjustice: "At long last, South End residents will know what is in the air they are breathing. We hope this is the first step towards the full environmental assessment of Global's operations that South End residents have been demanding for more than three years. We will continue our fight for environmental justice for the South End."
