Energy Team Meeting

May 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Event Navigation

There will be an energy team meeting to update members on Energy Equity and the proposed Boardman-to-Hemingway power line.

Energy Equity aims to bring community solar to affordable housing. We will have had a briefing from Commissioner Jack Howard about the housing situation in Union County on May 12th. Norm Cimon will use that as the context for discussing what comes next. A team has been assembled, and we’ve met with OTEC to fill them in. We’re moving on to the next stage.

As many of you know, a 500KV powerline from Boardman, Oregon to the Hemingway substation in Idaho is working its way through the regulatory system. There are a number of issues with the placement and also the overall viability of the line. This will be a short overview of those issues.

There will be time for questions, comments, and your suggestions and a few refreshments. All are welcome and we hope to see you there.
