2017 ENERGY MIX
To balance varying levels of electric demand while ensuring reliability, we need a variety of generation sources. The way we develop and utilize power supply sources continues to change based on the needs of our members.
About 39% of the energy used to meet member load was supplied through clean and renewable resources, such as wind, solar, hydro, biomass, and coal mine methane generation. About 53% came from coal, 6% came from gas, and about 2% was from market sources which could not be identified with a high level of certainty.
