Does anyone remember I-937 that was passed by the voters in 2006? Apparently, many of the recent critics of Cowlitz PUD do not. The voters mandated that the PUD obtain its power from renewable sources, 3 percent this year increasing to 15 percent in 2020. Never mind that hydropower can’t be considered renewable. Do these same critics think that obtaining power from more expensive sources won’t make rates increase? That constructing wind farms and other new generation sources doesn’t cost money? People need to wake up and realize that voting (and not voting) has consequences.
