1. These figures reflect the renewable resources of the unbundled renewable energy certificates (RECs) delivered to Blue Sky customers in 2021.
2. New Renewables come from generation facilities that first began commercial operation within the past 15 years.
In 2021, the “basic fuel mix”, the average mix of energy sources supplying Rocky Mountain Power customers, is 46.8% coal, 18.4% natural gas, 15.2% wind, 5.8% hydro, 3.9% solar, 0.3% geothermal, 0.4% biomass, and 9.2% 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.
Rocky Mountain Power’s basic fuel mix includes owned resources and purchases from third parties. All or some of the renewable energy attributes associated with wind, biomass, geothermal and qualifying hydro facilities in Rocky Mountain Power’s basic 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. As of March 30, 2022, not counting compliance use, approximately 35 percent of the renewable energy attributes associated with 2022 generation and purchases was sold to third parties or not acquired. This includes all renewable energy attributes of associated with a customer’s purchase of 677 megawatts of solar resources. This percentage may increase upon subsequent company sale of renewable energy certificates representing 2021 generation.
The average Rocky Mountain Power residential customer uses approximately 771 kWh per month.
