Embracing Clean Energy Forum

at Pocatello City Hall - Sponsored by

The Portneuf Resource Council,
The Snake River Alliance.
League's work on energy policy has become a priority with the emergence of global climate change. League supports: the use of a variety of energy sources, with an emphasis on conservation and efficient technologies; a predominant reliance on renewable resources; policies to limit reliance on nuclear fission; government action to encourage renewable resources, conservation, funding for research & development, incentives and mandatory standards; as well as, policies to reduce energy use and promote demand-management programs. In 2008 League called on Congress to enact legislation to shift to clean, renewable energy, place a moratorium on building new coal-fired power plants, and require utilities to produce a significant percentage of electricity from renewable resource. League strongly supports the EPA's Clean Power Plan and the development of state implementation plans. "Embracing Clean Energy" is important to the Pocatello League and we were honored to co-sponsor this forum.
