A brief description of other sources of electricity not specified above:

Seattle City Light does not have coal or natural gas resources in its power supply portfolio. However, it does make market purchases to balance or match its loads and resources. These purchases, along with market purchases made by Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), may incidentally include coal or natural gas resources, which are assigned to the utility. Any emissions associated with unspecified market purchases are offset through SCL greenhouse gas (GHG) neutrality policy.
