Powering Our Future

Exploring options that grow with us

Grant County and its energy needs are growing and will continue to grow as utilities across the state look to meet the mandates of Washington’s Clean Energy Transformation Act, a commitment to see 100% of the state’s electricity supply free of greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

Adding to Grant County's energy portfolio

For more than 60 years, Grant PUD has provided for our county’s power needs through its own generation resources. That is expected to change this decade. Continued customer growth means we will need more energy than what we produce in the next few years.  Our forecasts show we’ll begin to outgrow the amount of power we generate by approximately 2026. We’ll buy power, under contract, from outside the county to cover any deficits and keep the lights on to homes and businesses. Beyond that, we’ll enhance our hydropower and wind generation by investing in new energy resources that will comply with the state’s zero-carbon goals.
