Energy vision

As the industry transforms, we are on the brink of creating a new energy landscape with the community we serve. Our Energy Vision is our guiding principle for planning our future resource needs.

Our Energy Vision
Provide resilient, reliable and cost-effective energy that is environmentally sustainable, reduces our carbon footprint and uses proven state-of-the-art technologies to enhance our quality of life for generations to come.

Work to develop supporting goals of our Energy Vision is currently taking place within our integrated resource planning (IRP) process. The 2020 IRP will become the roadmap for meeting the energy needs of our community over the next 30 years.

Renewable energy goals
In our diverse generation portfolio, 11 percent of our generation is from carbon-free sources.

Efficiency goals
Why is efficiency so important? The least expensive electron is the one you don’t use. By reducing our community’s electric consumption, we can delay the need for new energy sources and reduce the use of natural resources. This goal can be achieved through:
