In the August 2022 Central Lincoln PUD publication “Boardlines” (news and views from Central Lincoln board members), there was a report, “Reducing Carbon Emissions,” by board member Curt Abbott, that would leave customers wondering about the future of renewable energy including hydro power from the Lower Snake River Dams.

“Right now, leaders in both states are actively fighting to have a large part of the system dismantled on the Lower Snake River and to make other dams less efficient by increasing water spill over them.” No mention of the reason for breaching these dams, which is to save the salmon in the river from extinction.
