CLOSED: August 14 was the last day for feedback.

Better idea. Any reliance on "variable energy sources" is a poor practice. Wind and solar - in addition to being expensive and mostly reliant on China for the minerals - are inherently unreliable. OPPD, in fact, admitted that it rates Platteview Solar at zero energy production in the Winter. But we ratepayers need electricity in the winter to light our homes and businesses.

OPPD has to build reliable base power supplies to generate power when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing. In other words, unnecessary redundancy. The result is wasted money; our money.

Pathways to Decarbonization is a giant mistake and should be terminated. It's plainly idiotic.

Do not crucify OPPD ratepayers on a cross of wind turbine blades!

I am looking at the two documents and trying to find anywhere in the second document in which OPPD makes a commitment to being "environmentally sensitive" or to consideration of "renewable resources" as part of supplying energy for the public which owns this utility and, I would argue, seeks commitment to those goals. This seems a pretty profound shift away from making a commitment OPPD ought to be making in the 21st century, knowing what we now know about climate change.

Is there any need for an additional bullet point under "Compute resource adequacy" regarding estimated population growth / changes?
