Integrated Resource Plans

Jurisdictional electric utilities are required to submit Integrated Resource Plans (IRPs) every two years. IRPs describe how the utility plans to deliver safe, reliable, and efficient electricity at just and reasonable rates. Further, these plans must be in the public interest and consistent with state energy and environmental policies.

Each utility’s IRP explains how it will use existing and future resources to meet customer demand. When selecting these resources, the utility must consider a broad range of potential future conditions and variables and select a combination that would result in the lowest overall long-term cost for its customers.

The following utilities must submit IRPs to the Commission. Here you may access the IRPs, as well as comments received about the plans.
