Avista owns or manages generation and other energy products throughout the western United States.
Here you will find information about our energy resources and transmission services.
The Avista fuel source mix allows us to meet energy demand reliably and at the lowest rate possible.
In 2012, we generated or purchased a diversified mix of resources to provide you with energy you can count on.
Participating customers purchased the environmental offsets associated with 72,534,900 megawatt-hours of new renewable energy like wind power and solar through Avista’s Buck-A-Block program.
Participating customers paid for and received the benefit of the emission-free energy, so it isn’t reported in Avista’s resource mix.
* Avista doesn’t own or operate landfill gas or nuclear generation facilities.
