Mission Statement

The Northwest & Intermountain Power Producers Coalition (NIPPC) is a membership-based advocacy group representing electricity market participants in the Pacific Northwest.  NIPPC has a diverse membership including independent power producers and developers, electricity service suppliers, transmission companies, marketers, storage providers, and others.  NIPPC is committed to fair and open-access transmission service, cost effective power sales, consumer choice in their energy supply, and fair, competitive power markets in the northwest and adjacent markets.

Principles

NIPPC supports a fully competitive electric power supply marketplace in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West based on the following principles:

  • Ensure that adequacy and reliability of electric supply is supported and not compromised.
  • Ensure that all market and transmission access, pricing, and regulatory structures allow all market participants to operate under the same terms and conditions in the regional marketplace.
  • Ensure efficient and transparent pricing signals are sent to all market participants facilitating investment in electric power supply and transmission infrastructure.
  • Ensure cost effective environmental, safety and security best practices are put in place and maintained.
