Integrated Resource Plans (IRPs)

 

When developing an IRP, utilities look to balance cost, reliability, rate volatility and renewable resource requirements. The IRP is developed with considerable public involvement from state utility commission staff, state agencies, customer and industry advocacy groups, project developers, and other stakeholders. The goal is to develop a 20-year plan that meets customers' needs for safe, reliable energy through the responsible and cost-effective use of resources, both in the near and long term.
