The Washington State Attorney General’s Citizen’s Advisory Committee to Public Counsel held its annual Legislative Preview this past week. WR has served on the committee for the last 18 years.
This significant meeting featured presentations by 17 different entities. Notable was a presentation by the Washington Trucking Association on several of their efforts to improve freight mobility. The Utilities and Transportation Commission spoke about energy rate filings and hearings. Other presenting organizations included Puget Sound Energy, Avista Corporation, Bonneville Power Administration, Pacific Corporation, Washington Public Utility Districts, and the Attorney General’s Legislative Team.
Much of the discussion focused on new power sources, such as hydrogen, and building the necessary infrastructure and capacity for clean energy and efficiency efforts. Retailers are among the world’s leaders in conservation and efficiency programs.
WR members benefit and save money from timely information, representation, and intervention by the competent and seasoned Public Counsel team. WR appreciates being part of the AG’s Committee.
