Is Pacificorp an Ethical Company?
There are grey areas here
1. The Dams Environmental Costs
2. Local Industry Depletion
Cost of equity = 9.32%
Growth rate = 7.45% or 3.00%
Value of equity = 439.3 millions / ( 0.0932-0.0745)
1. The Dams Environmental Costs
The infrastructure causes massive disruptions to the natural flora and fauna
2. In some areas, local salmon industries were destroyed because of these dams
On the Contrary
Hydroelectricity is clean energy
This issue is not all black and white however I personally believe that Pacificorp and the takeover is an ethical company
