Sources of Energy

The City of Cheney is required by state law to notify its customers each year of the source of the electric power sold to Cheney Light customers.

Goal


The goal of "fuel mix" disclosure is to educate consumers on the fuel sources that generate this electricity.

As a full-requirements customer of Bonneville Power Administration, Cheney Light's fuel mix is largely determined by BPA's own resources and market purchases.

For more information about Cheney Light's wholesale energy purchases, email Steve Boorman, Light Department Director.
