Meeting Demand Through Conservation
Alex Steffen, 1 Oct 04

Clark Williams-Derry over on Cascadia Scorecard brings this news:

"The most important new power source in the Northwest over the next five years will be...nothing at all! OK, that sounds a little cryptic. But the real news is exciting: the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (the people who figure out how to keep the lights and the power flowing throughout the region) are planning to meet new electricity demand through conservation -- paying people to use electricity more efficiently -- rather than by building new power plants. They're looking to save about 700 megawatts over the next 5 years."

Excellent. Right in sync with the Rand study on the effects of removing four dams from the Snake river...
