Why join NIPPC
Become a part of NIPPC's work
NIPPC is the voice of independent power in the Pacific Northwest & adjacent Intermountain region. We advocate on behalf of our members at both the state and federal level to protect the competitive power paradigm in the region.
NIPPC participates in proceedings before the state utility commissions of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana and advocates on state legislation as well. We maintain an active role in policies set by the Bonneville Power Administration and participate in proceedings before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. NIPPC also engages sometimes in litigation in state and federal court.
NIPPC’s work is focused on core areas of utility procurement, transmission policy, resource adequacy, retail consumer choice, and legislation affecting the power sector, including clean energy and decarbonization proposals.
NIPPC strives to be a constructive problem solver in complex regional energy debates. We defend competition as a means to spur innovation, lower costs, and create a cleaner electric grid. If you are a power generator, supplier, marketer, service provider, or consultant operating in the broader Northwest, we welcome you to join our work.
