Diversify & Improve
By increasing energy efficiency & diversifying clean energy generation, we can start preparing for the future now.
Don Steinke: the best choice to bring Clark PUD into the future!
Why Don Steinke?
Having taught physics, environmental science, clean and affordable energy and electronics for 43 years, mostly at Camas and Fort Vancouver high schools, Don Steinke brings a fresh, unique perspective to the Clark County PUD Board of Commissioners. When elected, Don will urge Clark PUD to provide clean and affordable energy services for electric cars and electric heat pumps as soon as possible. In particular, we need plugs for EVs in multifamily developments.
What is Clark PUD?
Clark Public Utilities, CPU, is also known as the Utility District of Clark County. It is owned by us, the public. CPU provides electricity to all of Clark County and provides water to parts of the county. CPU purchases about 65% of our energy from the Bonneville Power Administration and produces about 30% of our energy from its fracked gas plant on River Road at terminal 5. Clark PUD purchases most of its gas from Canada. We can keep that money here locally if we produce that energy locally.

I’ve taken the Fair Election Practices pledge!
The Fair Election Practices Campaign was established in the 1970s to promote issue-oriented and civil campaigning among candidates for public office. All candidates have been requested to sign a pledge to that effect. The FEPC Committee was established to hear complaints from those who feel their opponent has violated the pledge.
I’m proud to have taken this pledge to run a fair campaign, & encourage all other candidates to do the same!
