Clean Energy Mandate

CETA & CEIP

Clean Energy Mandate

 

On May 7th, 2019, Governor Jay Inslee signed into law the Clean Energy Transformation ACT (CETA), which commits Washington State to achieve an electricity supply that is 100% greenhouse gas emissions free by 2045.

About CETA

Electricity production is the third-largest source of carbon emissions in the state. The bill aims to curb that by eliminating coal power, including the importation of electricity produced by coal-fired power plants in neighboring states, by 2025. Washington utilities, including Grant PUD, are required by law to transition to a carbon-neutral electricity supply by 2030, before eliminating fossil fuel electricity production completely by 2045.

The legislation requires utilities to engage the public to help determine their clean energy transition. Utilities will be required to account for the costs and impacts of carbon pollution when considering energy sources. As part of this requirement, utilities must develop a Clean Energy Implementation Plan (CEIP) that demonstrates how they will work to meet carbon standards at the lowest reasonable cost in the next four years. In addition, utilities must develop a ten-year Clean Energy Action Plan (CEAP) as part of its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) to identify specific actions to be taken to implement CETA at the lowest reasonable cost while meeting an acceptable resource adequacy standard.
