Clean Energy Implementation Plan
Washington’s consumer-owned utilities are required to complete the Clean Energy Implementation Plan (CEIP) template by Jan. 1, 2022. The CEIP documents how a utility intends to comply with Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA)’s clean energy and equity requirements over the next four years and make progress towards the 2030 greenhouse gas neutral and 2045 greenhouse gas free standards.
As a tier 1 BPA customer, The PUD meets and exceeds the CETA requirement of using 80% or greater combined renewable and non-emitting resources for its retail load over the next four years and through 2030. However, to complete the equity requirements of the plan, the CEIP further requires the PUD to identify, through a public process, both vulnerable populations who might be affected by the costs and benefits of adopting CETA standards and indicators of costs and benefits incurred through the PUD’s adoption of CETA standards.
In order to meet the public process requirements, PUD staff led a roundtable discussion with the CAB on Monday Dec 13th, and reviewed the CEIP document with the PUD’s BOC on Tuesday Dec 14th. PUD staff are also reaching out to Jefferson County public health and social services staff for input and comment. Feedback from the general public is also welcome. If you would like to fill out our CETA CEIP Survey, please download the attached word document, fill it out, and email it back to email@example.com.
The PUD’s final CEIP will be reviewed once more by the commissioners on Dec 21st, 2021. If approved it will be submitted to the State of WA no later than Dec 31st, 2021.
