Regional Support

Energy Northwest member utilities are showing their support for Columbia Generating Station and its employees by issuing resolutions calling for the continued operation of Columbia during its lifecycle. Columbia received a license extension from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2012 to operate through 2043.


Pacific County Public Utility District 2 commissioners were first to place their signatures behind the economic and environmental value of Columbia, followed by Benton and Franklin PUDs and Grant County PUD 2. Since then, many other members and project participants have issued similar resolutions - see the full list below. (Read more)Resolutions-fan.png
