Historic Label 2016

   

1. These figures reflect the power delivered to Blue Sky customers in 2016. 

2. New Renewables come from generation facilities that first began commercial operation within the past 15 years.

In 2016, the “basic fuel mix”, the average mix of energy sources supplying Pacific Power customers, is 58.85% coal, 14.76% natural gas, 8.98% wind, 5.58% hydro, 1.68% solar, 0.44% biomass, 0.41% geothermal and 9.31% miscellaneous. This information is based on Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Form 1 data. The Pacific Power “basic fuel mix” is based on energy production and not resource capability, capacity or delivered energy.

All or some of the renewable energy attributes associated with wind, biomass, geothermal and qualifying hydro facilities in Pacific Power’s fuel mix may be: (a) used to comply with renewable portfolio standards or other regulatory requirements, (b) sold to third parties in the form of renewable energy credits and/or other environmental commodities or (c) not acquired. Pacific Power’s basic fuel mix includes owned resources and purchases from third parties. As of March 24, 2017, not counting compliance use, approximately 38 percent of the renewable energy attributes associated with 2016 generation was sold to third parties or not acquired. This percentage may increase upon subsequent company sale of renewable energy certificates representing 2016 generation.

The average Pacific Power residential customer uses about 962 kWh per month.
