PUD customers can learn how the utility is planning to meet load growth through conservation and green, renewable energy resources at two upcoming July meetings. The PUD currently is reviewing its draft “Integrated Resource Plan,” which provides a long-term strategy regarding future energy resources. It establishes an action plan that ensures enough resources are available, at a reasonable cost, to meet future energy loads.
The PUD’s preferred plan positions the utility as a leader in conservation and renewable resource development. It sets aggressive goals for new, cost-effective conservation and establishes “stretch” goals of 5 percent in additional energy efficiency. Under the plan, future power supplies would include geothermal, tidal, wind, landfill gas, small low-impact hydro and contracts with the Bonneville Power Administration.
Two public meetings are scheduled to share the proposed plan and get input from customers.
