Clean energy vision and goals

Our Clean Energy Vision


Successful execution of our strategy will enable us to achieve our clean energy initiatives. This includes:

By 2030: 

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions* from our utility operations by 50% from 2005 levels.
  • Reduce our electric utility water supply by 75% from 2005 levels.
  • Electrify 100% of our company-owned light-duty fleet vehicles.

By 2040:

  • Eliminate all coal from our generation fleet.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions* from our utility operations by 80% from 2005 levels.

By 2050:

  • Aspire to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions* from our utility operations.

We will continue to review and update our Sustainable Energy Plan and Clean Energy Vision, based on future economic developments, evolving energy technologies and emerging trends in the communities we serve. Learn more.pdf about recent updates to our goals, current progress and an overview of our customer-focused strategy.
