Tilting at Windmills and the Great Northwest Land Grab

Benton PUD’s General Manager, Rick Dunn, gained regional attention with an op-ed published in a weekly energy newsletter read by northwest utilities and policymakers. The opinion piece expresses opposition to a controversial local wind farm while supporting new nuclear development.
The opinion piece and related articles have been republished on Substack, which Benton PUD plans to use to influence state and federal energy policies. You can read articles without subscribing. Although, if you would like to be notified of future articles, subscribing to Rick’s Substack is free. Please read, share, and comment by clicking:
