Somehow I ended up on the Sierra Club email list and snail mail list...
I've never given them a penny, though, that I recall.
I must have signed an email petition?

Anyway, this email is addressed to "Moscow clean energy advocates" thus I
am forwarding it to Moscow's Vision2020.

Monday’s virtual workshop!

Hello Moscow clean energy advocates!

*Please join us on Monday at 7:30pm for a virtual workshop on Avista's
latest 25-Year Resource Plan - register here!
There's a telephonic public hearing on the Plan next Wednesday night, and
we need *tons* of clean energy supporters to "show up" and tell our
Commissioners that it's time for Avista to phase out coal and embrace
local, clean energy resources.

*Join Monday night's workshop to learn more and get support prepping your
own written or oral comments for the hearing!*  More info in the workshop
registration link
and below.

Thank you for raising your voice to support clean energy in North Idaho!
This is such a critical time to make your voice heard!

*Do you want Avista to invest in local, clean energy in North Idaho? Do you
want Avista to phase out dirty coal power in the region?*

*Now is your chance to make your voice heard!

Avista just finished its 25-Year Resource Plan, laying out where it’s going
to get its energy from in the decades to come.  *Thanks to the hard work of
Sierra Club activists and partners in Washington state, Avista now must
comply with Washington’s goal of achieving 100% clean energy by 2045, and
we’re glad to see this reflected in its latest Plan.*

However, we know that climate science and climate justice demand that we
reach that goal *even sooner*.  And we’re concerned that Avista’s Plan
alludes to making Idaho customers continue to pay for its aging, polluting,
and expensive coal plants *even after* they no longer provide power to
local customers.

Next Wed, Aug 5 at 5pm PT is the telephonic Idaho Public Hearing on
Avista’s Plan.  *We need tons of people to ‘show up’ and tell
decision-makers that we care about North Idaho’s clean energy future.*

*Join us on Monday, August 3 at 7:30pm PT for a virtual workshop to prepare
for the hearing, where you can learn more about Avista’s latest 25-Year
Resource Plan and get support drafting your own written or oral comments.

At Monday’s workshop, we’ll help you craft your own public comments to tell
the Idaho Public Utilities Commission that you support more clean energy in
Avista’s future.  Any customer can participate and submit a comment—no
“expertise” required!  We’ll discuss opportunities to either submit a
written comment anytime before Aug 19, or provide oral testimony at the
telephonic public hearing on Aug 5 (details here <https://puc.idaho.gov/>).

*Let’s make sure that Avista’s 25-Year Plan promotes the development of
local, clean energy resources and is fair for Idaho customers.*
