Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Planning Council > Web site
Through the Northwest Power Act of 1980 (PL 96-502), the U.S. Congress authorized Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon to create the Pacific Northwest Electric Power and Conservation Planning Council (commonly known as the Northwest Power and Conservation Council) as a planning and policy- making body. The four state governors each appoint two members to the council. Council members serve three-year terms and can be reappointed.
Congress charged the council with developing a program to protect, mitigate and enhance fish and wildlife affected by the development, operation, and management of hydroelectric facilities in the Columbia River Basin while assuring the Pacific Northwest an adequate, efficient, economical and reliable power supply; developing a power plan that included a 20-year demand forecast, an energy conservation program and the fish and wildlife program; and involving the public extensively in the decision-making process.
