Columbia Generating Station and this blog
Many of the blog posts will be about Columbia Generating Station. CGS has been an asset to the region. It provides 1,190 MW of safe, clean, reliable, cost-effective power. It also provides good jobs, charitable donations, and taxes. Columbia Generating Station is a boon to the state and the region.
This blog is sponsored by Energy Northwest, owner of Columbia Generating Station. This is a blog, however, not a series of policy statements by Energy Northwest. The opinions expressed in this blog are the opinions of the bloggers. Statements in this blog are not official policy statements of Energy Northwest.
We are looking to further the important discussion of our energy future. It’s that simple.
