We understand that climate change is a global concern and we are transitioning to a less carbon-intensive generation portfolio to help address the potential impacts of climate change while also focusing on our  responsibility to provide reliable and affordable electricity to our members. Our efforts in this area range from using energy wisely, operating our facilities in as efficient a manner as possible, controlling emissions and diversifying our generation portfolio.

 

Taken together, SMMPA has made a major commitment to sustainability and in the process, has significantly reduced its
carbon footprint. Since 2005, collectively these efforts have reduced 5.5 million tons of CO2 emissions – the same impact as nearly 1.2 million passenger cars from the road or the CO2 sequestered in over 6.5 million acres of U.S. forests in a year.
