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, electricity service suppliers, transmission companies and commercial and industrial customers. NIPPC is committed to facilitating cost effective electricity sales, offering consumers choice in their energy supply and advancing fair, competitive power markets.


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.
