Veteran Urges Support of HB 4036
Clean energy is good for national security
As a graduate of the United States Military Academy, I was an Infantry officer and had the honor of
serving in Iraq, among other places. In searching for a purposeful and fulfilling career after returning from
the war-torn Middle East, developing renewable energy here to keep friends from getting shot at over
there was very appealing for all the right reasons — including our national security.
Wind is affordable
I have a decade of experience in the renewable energy development field. In addition, as a proud resident
of Oregon and the sustainable use of our natural resources, I am very supportive of HB 4036 and a 50%
RPS. Of the procurement options available for new generation on an unsubsidized cost of energy
comparison, wind energy is one of the most affordable forms of electricity today.
Integration solutions will unlock much needed economic development
Oregon and our region are well situated to be an economic powerhouse for wind integration. Combining
energy storage with renewables holds great promise in the Northwest. It is the next quantum leap in
market growth and staggering economic development for the region. Specifically, proven hydroelectric
pumped storage can unlock the greater value of existing and future renewables by integrating them cost-
effectively without carbon emissions. Oregon has sites that are suitable for pumped storage, including
redevelopment of a brownfield that currently holds little economic value.
I urge your strong vote on the Clean Electricity and Coal Transition bill.
Sincerely,
Nate Sandvig
