Comment from Vanek, Josh

I applaud the planning processy NWE's undertaken, and appreciate the service the company provides. As a customer, I've listed my top three priorities below: 1) I'd like NWE to preserve strong energy efficiency and renewable energy targets. 2) Please set ambitiouis goals to reduce CO2 emissions in the region. 3) Phase out coal-fired power plants I am an E+ green user, and appreciate the program, and feel that the cost savings that may occur now with non-renewable energy sources will only come back to haunt us, and our children and grandchildren in the near future. You are in an historic place to effect serious shift in this, and customers, like me, will appreciate a change in approach. Thank you. Josh
