On energy efficiency:

“What Chelan PUD learned about [cryptocurrency] is that there are no rules, no guidelines, no benchmarks and, as a result, many folks are turning to the utility for help. The impact is substantial: Cryptocurrency can place large burdens on the system and equipment, and pose large financial risks. ‘This single issue also has placed a huge burden on our staff,’ said Chelan PUD General Manager Steve Wright. ‘This isn’t work we had planned and it certainly wasn’t a part of our five-year strategic plan for asset investments.’”

  • Suzanne Hartman and John Stoll, Chelan County PUD – Navigating Through the Eye of the Storm, page 15, Fall 2018
