Seattle meets ambitous goal: no net greenhouse gas emissions
Seattle City Light has become the first large electric utility in the country to effectively eliminate its contribution of greenhouse gas emissions into the environment, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels said Nov. 9. The municipal utility met its net-zero emissions goal after it signed a contract Nov. 9 to purchase greenhousegas emission offsets from DuPont Fluorochemicals of Wilmington, Del. “ We a re sett ing new Carrasco: Seattle utility is environmen“setting new environmental tal standards standards for our industry.” fo r o u r i n dustry,” said Seattle City Light Superintendent Jorge Carrasco. “This is a proud day for the utility and the people who own it–the citizens of Seattle.” Nickels said the city “has a long history of being a leader when it comes to protecting the environment. This is just the kind of bold and meaningful action that proves we can make a big difference in our region and around the world.” Seattle City Light said it has been working since 2000 to meet all new electrical demand with cost-effective conservation and renewable resources. At that time, the Seattle City Council set a long-term goal of net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions. In 2003, City Light signed its first greenhouse gas offset contract with Climate Trust, which reduced emissions in cement manufacture by promoting the use of substitute materials. In 2004, the utility launched a biodiesel program that paid for the use of the cleaner-burning fuel in several local vehicle fleets. Seattle City Light said it also has worked with other organizations, such as King County Metro and Washington State Ferries, to reduce emissions and thereby offset greenhouse gases (continued on page 3)

Two municipalization efforts fail; 17 Iowa cities OK telecom initiatives
Ballot measures that would have created municipal electric utilities in Iowa City, Iowa, and Belleair, Fla., were defeated in the Nov. 8 elections, and so was an initiative in California that would have re-regulated the electricity market. But municipal telecommunications initiatives in Iowa made headway. Residents in 17 out of 32 Iowa cities voted in favor of ballot measures authorizing their communities to form city-owned telecommunications utilities, even though private telecom companies spent nearly $1.5 million opposing the measures. The telecom initiatives were backed by OpportunityIowa, a not-for-profit organization supported by businessman Clark McLeod. Via a group called the Project Taxpayer Protection, telecommunication concerns spent more than $1.4 million on ads urging voters to reject the Iowa proposals, the A ssociated Press reported. Most of the money donated to Project Taxpayer Protection came from Mediacom Communications Corp., the news service said. The media blitz was surprising to Scott Sackville, a resident of Hampton, populat ion 4,218. “The sheer number of dollars being pumped into Hampton, Iowa, you wonder where the money’s coming from,” he said. The following cities approved municipal telecommunications utilities: Ack ley, A namosa, A sbur y, Charles City, Dubuque, Hamburg, Hampton, Hudson, Iowa Falls, Lansing, Lenox, Maquoketa, Mason City. Parkersburg, Waterloo, Waukon and West Union. Under state law, a vote to form a communications utility “does not commit the city to building or financing anything,” reported the Des Moines Register. “Cities where the vote passed can now appoint boards to further evaluate the possibility of a utility.” C om mu n it ies where t he mea su re failed will not be able to bring the issue to voters again for four years, the newspaper said. The 15 other cities rejected cit yow ned telecom utilities. They are: A ltoona, Carlisle, Clar inda, Cres co, Dunlap, Glenwood, Hiawat ha, M a n c h e s t e r, M a r i o n , N e v a d a , (continued on page 5)

The increased likelihood that holding companies will contain utility and non-utility businesses requires new structural protections to ensure FERC’s ability to regulate rates and prevent cross-subsidization. APPA and NRECA suggested the agency “adopt a simple prophylactic test: if the value of a transaction measured either by fair market value or the undepreciated original cost of assets exceeds $10 million.
