Compliance and Reporting

Clean Energy Transition Act (CETA)

2020-Bonneville Power Administration Lock and Dam

Commerce has adopted comprehensive reporting procedures for consumer-owned utilities, including public utility districts, municipal electric utilities and electric cooperatives. These utilities must submit clean energy implementation plans every four years, and all utilities must submit progress or compliance reports starting in 2026.

January 1, 2022, Clean Energy Implementation Plan (CEIP) Template

Washington’s consumer-owned utilities are required to complete the CEIP template by Jan. 1, 2022. The CEIP will document how a utility intends to comply with CETA’s clean energy and equity requirements over the next four years and make progress towards the 2030 greenhouse gas neutral and 2045 carbon free standards. Commerce appreciates the time and attention to detail stakeholders put into providing feedback on the template. 

February 1, 2022, Reporting Template (RCW 19.405.120(4))

All electric utilities in Washington are required to report on their energy assistance programs as directed under RCW 19.405.120(4). The first report will be due on February 1, 2022 to Commerce using a forthcoming reporting template. The reporting template was co-developed with a Technical Advisory Group made up of members representing public utility district, rural electric coops, municipal utilities, investor owned utilities, low-income advocates and state agency staff. On June 17, a public webinar was held to solicit feedback on this form and answer questions about the work directed under this section of the Clean Energy Transformation Act. Please find a recording of the webinar below.
