Five Guiding Principles:

  • BPA will use the Northwest Power and Conservation Council plan to identify the agency's share of cost-effective conservation.
  • Most conservation will be pursued and achieved at the local level.
  • BPA will seek to meet its conservation goals at the lowest possible cost and lowest possible rate impact.
  • BPA will continue an appropriate level of funding for local administrative support to plan and implement conservation programs.
  • Although they often don't yield measurable savings, successful initiatives such as education, outreach, and low-income weatherization are important pieces of the conservation portfolio and should continue to be funded.
