We're adding more renewable energy to benefit our customers, communities and the environment
Our customers increasingly have their own sustainability and climate goals. Every day, a growing number of customers seek solutions that will help them reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. And they are seeking clean, renewable energy solutions to help meet those goals. Generating electricity from renewable resources is playing an important role in building a cleaner energy future for everyone.
We’re transforming our utility generation to better meet our customers’ needs, including expanding our cost-effective solar and renewable energy resources and other clean energy solutions as technology and economics continue to improve.
By accelerating our investments in large-scale renewable power generation, we’re making clean energy infrastructure more accessible across our region and we’re helping our customers meet their own goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Over the next three years, we plan to more than triple our existing renewable resources. To meet customer demand for clean energy capacity, we see the potential for up to 17 gigawatts of renewable energy generation in our portfolio by 2031.
