Editorial: Expand use of renewable energy by utilities
"Ten years ago, Washington state voters, recognizing the imperative need to address climate change and cleaner air, passed Initiative 937, which requires the state’s electrical utilities to use renewable resources for a portion of the electricity they provide to their customers. Many utilities, public and private, balked. But since passage those utilities have been able to meet the initiative’s requirements."
As we hit the 10 year anniversary of I-937, Washington's renewable energy standard, we need to be looking to the next phase of our energy future. The Evertett Herald Editorial Board makes a number of great points.
