Clean Energy Implementation Plan

Columbia REA Seeks Public Input

On May 7th, 2019, Governor Jay Inslee signed into law the Clean Energy Transformation ACT (CETA), which commits Washington to an electricity supply clean of greenhouse emissions by 2045. Clean electricity will allow the state to replace fossil fuels in other end uses, especially transportation, and achieve its long-term climate goals.

CETA requires electric utilities to prepare a Clean Energy Implementation Plant (CEIP) by January 1, 2022, and every four years thereafter. These plans 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
    • 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
