Description (excerpt):

The Pacific Northwest power system faces a host of uncertainties, from compliance with federal carbon dioxide emissions regulations to future fuel prices, resource retirements, salmon recovery actions, economic growth, a growing need to meet peak demand, and how increasing renewable resources would affect the power system. The Council’s Seventh Power Plan addresses these uncertainties and provides guidance on which resources can help ensure a reliable and economical regional power system over the next 20 years.
