Integrated Resource Plans
Utilities must engage in integrated resource planning, in which they plan on both a short-term and long-term basis by evaluating available resource alternatives to meet a utility’s future electricity requirements. Electric utilities are required to submit integrated resource plans to the commission. Find these IRPs, as well as Director reports and all submitted comments here.
