The Northwest Power and Conservation Council, based in Portland, Oregon, develops and maintains a regional power plan and a fish and wildlife program to, as the group puts it; "balance the Northwest's environment and energy needs".

According to the organization's website, they handle three primary tasks:[1]

  • Develop a 20-year electric power plan that will guarantee adequate and reliable energy at the lowest economic and environmental cost to the Northwest.
  • Develop a program to protect and rebuild fish and wildlife populations affected by hydropower development in the Columbia River Basin.
  • Educate and involve the public in the Council’s decision-making processes.
