In Oregon, the nature of our discussions about climate change and utilities has changed. We have moved from talking about how we consider the risk of carbon regulation, to actively working to decarbonize our utilities. The next step is to use our clean, decarbonized electricity to decarbonize transportation and the wider economy. We used to talk about the state’s carbon goals as aspirational. But now we are planning around those goals. This is a dramatic shift with big implications, which we will explore at our 2018 Policy Conference.
