What We Do
Renewable Northwest intervenes in utilities’ Integrated Resource Planning processes to maximize the amount of non-emitting resources that replace retiring coal plants and meet growing demand.
Renewable Northwest engages with partners in state-level policy development and detailed regulatory proceedings across numerous state agencies to ensure that all residents of the Northwest benefit from a cleaner, safer, and efficient electric grid.
Renewable Northwest advocates for regional market expansion to value the geographic diversity of renewable energy generation and facilitate the most efficient and cost effective decarbonization of the grid. Additionally, we acknowledge that lack of transmission is currently a major barrier to bringing more renewable generation to load. We advocate for regional planning around transmission expansion and prioritization of interconnection of greater amounts of renewable generation.
