"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Has the institution conducted a GHG emissions inventory within the previous three years that includes all Scope 1 and 2 emissions? :
Yes

A copy of the most recent GHG emissions inventory:
A brief description of the methodology and/or tool used to complete the GHG emissions inventory:

We used the SIMAP tool for our emissions calculations


Has the GHG emissions inventory been validated internally by personnel who are independent of the GHG accounting and reporting process and/or verified by an independent, external third party?:
Yes

A brief description of the GHG inventory verification process:

We worked with a SIMAP representative to ensure the inventory was accurate.


Documentation to support the GHG inventory verification process:
---

Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 6293.29 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 163.37 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
6456.66 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 6702.78 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
6702.78 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross GHG emissions from biogenic sources, performance year:
0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Does the GHG emissions inventory include Scope 3 emissions from the following sources?:
Yes or No Weight in MTCO2e
Business travel No ---
Commuting No ---
Purchased goods and services No ---
Capital goods No ---
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 Yes 325.07 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Waste generated in operations No ---
Other sources No ---

Total Scope 3 GHG emissions, performance year:
650.14 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

A brief description of how the institution accounted for its Scope 3 emissions:

The only scope 3 emissions we report are the Transmission and Delivery losses calculated by SIMAP


Has the institution completed an inventory within the previous three years to quantify its air pollutant emissions?:
Yes

Annual weight of emissions for::
Weight of Emissions
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) 10.29 Tons
Sulfur oxides (SOx) 2.42 Tons
Carbon monoxide (CO) ---
Particulate matter (PM) ---
Ozone (O3) ---
Lead (Pb) ---
Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) ---
Ozone-depleting compounds (ODCs) ---
Other standard categories of air emissions identified in permits and/or regulations ---

Do the air pollutant emissions figures provided include the following sources?:
Yes or No
Major stationary sources No
Area sources Yes
Mobile sources Yes
Commuting ---
Off-site electricity production Yes

A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:

NOx was determined using SIMAP, SOx was taken directly from utility provider. See internal notes for how Sox from vehicles and LPG was calculated.
