SIERRA CLUB
March 11, 2010

We are engaged in a Beyond Coal campaign in Oregon. We have two knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff members who have recruited a large number of volunteers who have turned out for monthly meetings and various campaign events like phonebanking, tabling, and rallies. Our campaign has been effective in getting Portland General Electric to scale back the shutdown schedule for their coal plant. We have also been effective in getting the Northwest Power & Conservation Council to consider conservation in their next plan.
