UTC Weekly Bulletin- July 28

Source: Utilities and Transportation Commission, July 28, 2020

New workshops, rulemakings, and upcoming dates

The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission invites the public to participate in its work to implement Washington’s 2019 clean energy legislation.

The 2019 Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA) requires electric utilities to transition to a carbon-neutral supply of electricity by 2030 and source 100% of their electricity from renewable or non-carbon-emitting sources by 2045.

The commission is conducting numerous rulemakings, workgroups, and other proceedings to implement these changes along with other energy legislation enacted during the 2019 session. 

New announcements

  • Commission headquarters remain closed to the public. Our staff are following Gov. Inslee’s phased reopening plan by teleworking. Open meetings and other official business will continue remotely during this closure. Please see the commission’s COVID-19 response page for more information on impacts to our operations and regulated industries. 
  • Due to a technical error during the commission’s May 22 workshop on equity topics in the commission’s IRP, CEIP, and POE rulemakings (dockets UE-190698UE-190837, and UE-191023), workshop audio was not captured in the Skype recording posted to the commission website. Workshop slides and chat comments are available online and are posted to these rulemaking dockets. We apologize for the error.

Upcoming events and deadlines

There are no upcoming events or deadlines at this time. The bulletin events table will be updated as new events are scheduled and as draft rules are posted for public comment.
