  Clean Energy Implementation Plan: Public Input Survey

In 2019 the State of Washington legislature passed the Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA) and the governor signed it into law.  This law requires Centralia City Light (CCL) to submit a Clean Energy Implementation Plan (CEIP) by January 1, 2022.  We are asking for public input from our customers to assist in preparing this plan.

Clean energy is electricity that does not produce carbon or other greenhouse gases (GHG) when it is generated.  Examples are hydroelectric, solar, wind, geothermal, and tidal power.  
CCL purchases the majority of your power from the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA).  Most (approximately 90%) of that power is GHG and carbon-free from hydroelectric and nuclear sources. As our area’s electrical needs have increased, your utility has purchased additional power from BPA and from the power market.  The “power market” is a combination of various resources, managed by an independent market operator.  In our area, much of this generation is produced by hydro, but sometimes it could be produced from coal, natural gas, wind, or solar.  CCL contracts for the necessary amounts to meet the electrical needs of our customers.
CCL is in the midst of developing a CEIP and we want to better understand how our customers view their community and how the transition to cleaner electricity could help shape the future.  
CCL is interested in receiving your feedback on this plan. Please select the attached link below that will take you to the Public Input Survey.  Your responses will be anonymous.  The survey will be available from Tuesday, November 23, 2021 through noon on Friday, December 3, 2021.  There is also a link to the Draft Clean Energy Implementation Plan for your review.

Thank you for your interest and support.
