2021 Clean Energy Implementation Plan (CEIP)

A public hearing will be held to receive comments on the draft CEIP, the date and time of the hearing is on the PUD's commission meetings page.

A draft copy of the CEIP can be found here

This is the first CEIP required under Washington’s new Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA) and covers the first four-year interim compliance period beginning in 2022 and ending in 2025.

CETA requires electric utilities to prepare a CEIP by January 1, 2022, and every four years thereafter. According to Washington RCW 19.405.060, the CEIP must:

  • Propose interim targets for meeting CETA’s standards for greenhouse gas neutral electricity in 2030 and clean energy in 2045
  • Identify specific targets for energy efficiency, demand response, and renewable energy
  • Identify specific actions for meeting the interim targets and specific actions described above
  • Ensure that all customers benefit from the transition to clean energy

Further requirements for the development of CEIPs are specified in Chapter 194-40 of the Washington Administrative Code.
