Our Progress So Far

Since 1999, we’ve already reduced carbon emissions by 50 percent while generating more power for our growing communities. And we’re not done yet. We're committed to reducing carbon emissions that will help us work towards a net-zero vision.

Why It Matters

Protecting the Planet

It’s not just your planet, or ours. It’s the planet that our children and future generations will depend on. That’s why we’re working to rapidly reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

Affordable Rates for the Long Term

Evolving how we make energy is no small task. But through long-term planning we can prioritize affordable rates for you even as we shift to renewable energy sources and other emerging technologies.

Increased Reliability

Updating our grid won’t just improve the quality and cleanliness of our energy. It’ll be more reliable too, thanks to a modernized grid and the introduction of battery storage options.
