Resource Plan Overview

Our resource plans propose future power supply resources, and are part of our overall strategy to improve the way we work with customers. These plans ensure that we can provide you the electricity and/or natural gas that you depend on, while keeping your energy costs low.

Resource plans are initially considered “filings” as they are filed with the Public Utilities Commission of the particular state that the plan was proposed in, and in addition to working to maintain a reliable energy system while keeping customer costs low, the plans often times propose bold strategies around cleaner operations, including but not limited to, reducing carbon emissions, transitioning from coal to cleaner energy options including renewable energy and natural gas, accelerating renewable energy development. Resource plans also typically include measures to support the growing economies of the state that the plan was proposed in.

Resource plans are developed by considering studies, forecasts, regulatory predictions and information exchanged through a public advisory process, combined with historical data, existing and potential resource capability, and costs associated with alternative portfolio solutions.
