  •  36% of Puget Sound Energy electricity is from coal (0+ / 0-)

    It may not be burned in the state anymore but it is still being burned somewhere.

    •  You're right (1+ / 0-)

      WA has a state law that requires electric utilities to disclose how their power was generated. I found this article: The Tale of Two Electrical Outlets, from which I found this graph:

      Apparently PSE gets a bunch of their electricity from a coal-burning plant in Montana (which is the second biggest coal-powered plant west of the Mississippi) and PSE is by far the most coal-dependent utility in WA. 50% of the coal electricity in WA is sold by PSE. The other electric utilities have relatively small percentages from coal.

      But the angle said to them, "Do not be Alfred. A sailor has been born to you"

      •  Pacific Power (owned by Warren Buffett) (0+ / 0-)

        is as dependent on coal as Puget Sound.  Both companies are partners on the Montana Colstrip coal power plants.
