Fuel Mix Report


Calculations are based on power purchases for 2023 and 2022 BPA fuel mix data applied to 2023 purchases. Results to be updated.

KPUD 2023 Power Supply Fast Facts:

  • Roughly 84% of our 2023 power supply was from carbon free resources including hydro, wind and nuclear power.
  • The remaining 16% of our power was largely obtained from market purchases from Washington based generation resources which include carbon free or low carbon resources.
  • Of our overall 2023 power supply 79% was supplied by BPA, 8% was supplied by KPUD’s share of output from specific hydro projects and the remainder was supplied through other purchases.

Additional Power Supply Information:

As you can see from the charts above, the vast majority of our 2023 power supply needs were met by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). BPA provides us with a steady and predictable power supply that serves the majority of our base power needs. Our primary share of the BPA system is largely fixed for the duration of our BPA contract but can slightly adjust every two years.

Future Power Supply:

Effective 10/1/2023 KPUD has started taking the BPA Tier 2 product for our power supply not met by BPA Tier 1 or our share of McNary and Packwood hydro projects. The BPA Tier 2 product is currently allocated the same low carbon fuel mix as their Tier 1 offering. Below you will find an additional chart showing the impact of this change on our forecasted 2024 power supply:


KPUD is well positioned to meet the requirements established in the Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA) passed in 2019. This requires that KPUD utilizes a carbon neutral power supply between 2030 and 2044 while later achieving a carbon free power supply starting in 2045. Planning is underway to ensure we are able to to continue offering save, reliable and cost effective utility services to our local communities given the requirements of CETA.
