The Power Content Label (PCL) is an annual report that shows where your electricity was generated during the calendar year and how it compares to the state of California’s power mix. AMP is currently on track to be carbon neutral in 2020. Its power mix easily exceeds California’s requirements for clean power.

During 2017, 66 percent of AMP’s power mix came from clean energy sources, including renewable sources and large hydroelectric sources. Twenty-one percent of AMP’s power mix came from renewable resources, including biomass (landfill gas) from Pittsburg, Butte, Santa Cruz and Richmond; small hydroelectric from Graeagle; and winds from the High Winds Project in Sonoma County.

An additional 45 percent of our power mix came from large hydroelectric projects in Calaveras and the Central Valley (California does not count power from large hydroelectric dams as renewable).
