Comment from Nelson, Kris

The power plan should be applauded for its emphasis on the untapped resource value of energy efficiency available to offse the need for new generation and, potentially, for replacement of the dirtiest, carbon-costliest resource, coal-fired power. NOw it's time to seriously tap the climate-protecting potential of cost-effective conservation opportunities widely available in residential, commercial and some industrial sectors. It's not too late to bolster your good start with additional carbon reducing plans based on extensive efficiency gains. Please, engage your expert skills and agile minds to avail ourselves of carbon-offsetting measures. We have the technology; do we have the will? Thank you.
