Turn out for Salmon & Clean Energy

Protect your vision of a future with wild salmon and clean energy!
As Northwesterners, we want plentiful wild salmon, renewable energy, and a healthy economy. However, our shared vision of a future with restored salmon runs and clean energy is at risk.

The Bush Administration, through the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), faces a financial crisis of its own making. In response, BPA is proposing to either raise rates slightly or cut the very programs you care about: salmon restoration, renewable energy, and energy conservation. The increase would only be $1-3 more on a monthly electricity bill to maintain these investments. Come to the Portland hearings to stand up for your vision of our region salmon and clean energy. Tell the BPA that funding for sustainability should be a top priority, a priority too important to be sacrificed on the chopping block!
