TransAlta Centralia Board Funding, LLC (the “Centralia Coal Transition Grants”) provides grants to Lewis and South Thurston County businesses, nonprofit organizations and local governments in three areas: to improve energy efficiency; enhance worker retraining and economic development; and seed energy technology projects that improve our environment.
This grant program is funded by TransAlta USA to help the community as it transitions away from coal-fired electric power generation. It is the result of a historic agreement to phase out TransAlta’s coal-fired plant in Centralia, Washington.

We are also a proud contributor to the communities in which we live and work.
