Is Portland General Electric (PGE) going to phase out coal?

    Oregon itself only has one coal power plant, the Boardman Coal plant.  It is located in the sparsely populated eastern part of the state, out of sight from many urban dwellers.  It seems as though phasing out the coal power plant is one big step into the future.  The company sees that coal is a very valuable resource because of how inexpensive it is and how much the energy demand fluctuates with days and seasons.  With only one other gas plant in the company and a wind farm that produces only 4% of the total energy for the company, it will be a very hard and long process to phase out the coal plant that is only 20 years old.
