Friends, We urge you to contact your Representatives in the Washington State House to OPPOSE HB 2676. This bill currently is in the House Rules Committee and may be voted on in the full House soon. This bill would reduce the incentives to produce additional new renewable energy by making power currently produced by the Bonneville Power Administration eligible for I-937 credits that would otherwise encourage new sources of clean energy. The purpose of the Energy Independence Act of 2006 (I-937) was to encourage and reward the creation of new renewable energy sources in the state. Specifically, HB 2676 would allow incremental electricity produced as a result of efficiency improvements to hydroelectric generation projects whose energy output is marketed by the Bonneville Power Administration to qualify as an eligible renewable resource under the energy independence act. You could use the last two paragraphs above as your letter, but if you have time, adding a personal note is really helpful. Thank you!
