Maybe some ratepayers can't afford to pay to take Boardman offline, but PGE certainly can. We've been paying for Boardman with our health and with the climate, and coal infrastructure has been subsidized by the government for years. It's time we invest in cleaner, more efficient options in the 21st century, not the 19th.
2020 isn't soon enough. Period. If 2020 is good for ratepayers, why not do even better for our health too and shut it down in 2014? PGE's been polluting for decades. I don't think it's fair to threaten that rates will go up, or that the lights will go out if PGE does the right thing by shutting down in 2014. PGE could do this if they wanted to.
