When Pacific Power asked the Oregon Public Utility Commission for a 3.5% rate hike some of that money was meant to cover the cost of pollution control improvements at coal-fired power plants in Utah and Wyoming. But Bob Valdez says the PUC rejected most of the request because the utility did not give good enough reasons for the hike – that would affect thousands of Oregonians.  The hike denial will save residents a lot - about $17-million the PUC is saving Pacific Power customers in Oregon.
