The latest energy plan for the Pacific Northwest has been adopted with the goal of limiting greenhouse gas pollution by increased conservation and wind power development.
The Northwest Power and Conservation Council unanimously adopted the regional energy plan Wednesday at a meeting in Portland.
The plan covers Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana for the next 20 years. But the council revises it every five years to keep up with changes.
The new plan says most of the increased demand for electricity in the Northwest can be met with improved efficiency, conservation and wind power.
