Stop the HydroOne sale

Who gave Avista the option to sell America’s energy company to Canada’s HydroOne and why? Canada can later sell HydroOne to China or any country, due to international trade agreements. Then what?


It’s critically important as American national security concerns that we disallow any foreign-owned corporation to own/control our energy companies, dams, electrical and natural gas infrastructure.

Being a member of the UN’s Paris Accord on climate change, Canada’s HydroOne can and will charge American ratepayers exorbitant prices for their green-mandated laws.

HydroOne is switching to unreliable and unaffordably expensive windmills and solar, both requiring labor-intensive maintenance for correct operation. Solar panels require weekly cleaning and regular batteries’ replacement. Consequently, America’s reliable hydroelectric-generating dams will deteriorate, ending our affordable energy.

Despite being told this sale is going through, the Regulatory Commission of Alaska can stop this imminent sale. We citizens can also stop this sale if we will only do so.

Alaskans, please email your Regulatory Commission of Alaska at to voice your concerns about this imminent sale.

Thank you for your efforts.

E.C. Stellmon,

Athol, Idaho
