Energy Mix

SSVEC has seen major changes in our energy mix over the last two years.

In 2016 over 80% of our energy was produced by coal and in 2018 that number has dropped to 25.1%. With the new hoover power contracts, our hydro power has increased from 5.2% to 6.2%. Power from natural gas has increased from 3% to over 40.7%. Solar has gone from almost nothing to over 7%. The solar number does not include homes and businesses that have installed solar nor the schools solar project where SSVEC installed solar shade structures and they keep the electricity that is produced. And our purchase of power on the open market, which is most from natural gas, has increased from just over 11% to over 21%.
