Powering Our Future
Grant PUD needs more electricity to
meet future demand
The demand for electricity in Grant County is rapidly growing beyond the capacity of Grant PUD’s energy resources. Our projections show the next decade will bring even faster growth, as more families arrive, business and industry expands, and emerging new sectors, including a shift toward electrified cars and trucks for personal and commercial use, require more electricity than we can supply, even with our current strategy of supplemental market purchases.
Preparing for the future
A specialized team at Grant PUD has been studying our options to acquire the additional energy we’ll need to power our county at the lowest possible cost and in accordance with our state’s mandate to phase out harmful greenhouse gas emissions from the energy supply.
A longer-term solution for both Grant PUD and the Pacific Northwest could include building or otherwise investing in new sources of generation to supplement our own carbon-free hydro and wind power. As we continue to weigh that option, we plan to lock-in additional supplies of electricity and capacity through additional power-purchase contracts.
