In 2018, the “basic fuel mix”, the average mix of energy sources supplying Rocky Mountain Power customers, is 56.39% coal, 15.44% natural gas, 8.80% wind, 5.15% hydro, 3.79% solar, 0.34% geothermal, 0.34% biomass, and 9.75% miscellaneous. This information is based on Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Form 1 data. The Rocky Mountain 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 Rocky Mountain 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. Rocky Mountain Power’s basic fuel mix includes owned resources and purchases from third parties. As of March 25, 2019, not counting compliance use, approximately 43 percent of the renewable energy attributes associated with 2018 generation and purchases was sold to third parties or not acquired. This percentage may increase upon subsequent company sale of renewable energy certificates representing 2018 generation.
The average Rocky Mountain Power residential customer uses approximately 709 kWh per month.
