Final Comments on Eminent Domain - This Tuesday!

Last chance for public comment on Idaho Power's request for a CPCN (certificate for public convenience and necessity) also known as Eminent Domain, will be accepted until January 10th. Two hearings were held (in Nov & Dec) and about 40 people gave passionate and informed verbal testimony. If you missed our full Action Alert with more details and stories about the first hearing, go Here.  Some of the key links from that newsletter were:

- Q&A from the OR Public Utilities Commission on the CPN 5 docket: Link.

- Talking Points from STOP:  Link.

- Address & Subject line for your email Comments:  #CPN-5.   

- Link to the full Docket, which includes things like: testimony thus far, filings, and the judges' memorandums. (hint: you may need to scroll or search by date or name as the docket grows.)

While this is the last opportunity for public comment, intervenors* and OPUC staff are still engaged in this contested case which is scheduled to run through June 2023.
Next Week:  Raise Your Pen! (or email :-)

*If you are an intervenor at the OPUC in this contested case, your Opening Testimony is due on January 17, 2023.  The Discovery Phase is now in progress.  If you want a stronger involvement in this case, you can file to be an “intervenor.”  An intervenor is like having “standing” in the case.  To be an intervenor contact Jim at: to discuss what this entails.
