HOW CENTRALIAíS ELECTRICITY IS GENERATED


The Centralia City Light Departmentís hydroelectric project provides over 25% of the power its customers need. The remainder is purchased through long-term contracts with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA).

The following table provides information on the fuels used to generate the electricity Centralia provided to its customers in 2012. While Centralia owns no nuclear or coal generation, a portion of the power purchased from BPA comes from these sources and is reflected in the fuel mix shown in the table.

This information is provided in compliance with fuel disclosure provisions of the Fuel Mix Disclosure section of State law. For additional information, please contact Centralia City Light at 330-7512.
