Energy Sources

Electricity powers our businesses, heats our homes and improves our health.  Where your electricity comes from is just as important as how it gets to you. Our commitment to reliability includes a diversified generation portfolio. Fifteen years ago, your electricity was generated solely from coal-fired power plants. Today, natural gas and renewable generation such as wind, solar, hydro, coalbed methane and landfill gas make up 42 percent of the resources that supply the electricity needed to power members’ homes and businesses. Coal provides the remainder of our generation capacity.

There is no one, single, perfect energy choice. All are needed. When taken together, all energy sources - coal, natural gas, and renewables – assure reliable and affordable power – now and in the future.
