About Us

Northwest Energy Management Services (NEMS) represents twenty-one Load Following utilities who hold Regional Dialogue and  Network Transmission Service Agreements with BPA.

NEMS was formed in response to BPA’s changing obligations to serve preference utility’s net load requirements and the implementation of its Tiered Rates Methodology.

The goal of NEMS is to achieve economies of scale and efficiencies in operation in securing non-federal power supply and transmission services while accommodating each member’s unique characteristics. NEMS and its members strive to meet this goal by aggregating each member utility’s non-federal power supply needs and by secure long-term rights from a diverse set of resources.

Mission Statement

Based on individual members’ unique needs, NEMS collectively acquires and manages diversified power supply and transmission services, reliably and cost-effectively.

NEMS further supports members’ near- and long-term power supply needs by providing advocacy, education, analytics, and other energy-related services.
