Protecting and enhancing the environment is a core principle for Pacific Power. While providing safe, reliable electric service to our customers, we strive to be good stewards by conserving natural resources, developing innovative solutions, growing renewable resources, reducing emissions, protecting habitats and more.
We committed to the American Business Act on Climate Pledge in July 2015 as another step on our path to a cleaner energy future.
We employ innovative air quality initiatives to reduce environmental impacts. With our primary focus on reducing or avoiding emissions, we continuously develop and implement strategies to improve our performance. In 2014, we began exploring new technologies to capture carbon and other emissions from our power plants.
Wildlife & Habitat Protection
Protecting wildlife habitat is central to our goal of protecting the environment. We focus on preserving forests, grasslands and wetlands; reducing hydroelectric facilities’ impact on fish and wildlife; and implementing avian protection plans. We also use land reclamation techniques to restore habitat after dam removal and when completing mining operations.
