Comment from Jackson, Jeff

While the draft plan has some good elements, it needs to be strengthened. The plan should reflect the best and latest climate science and be tailored to meeting regional carbon-reduction goals. The draft plan would only stabilize global warming emissions, but not reduce them. The council should include in the draft a reasonable carbon dioxide price forecast for utilities to use for planning and in their on-going operations. Lastly, conservation targets should be increased to average 1450 aMW every 5 years.
