Power IRP Virtual Community Meeting #3 September 21

PWP is hosting a Power Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) virtual community meeting on Thursday, Sep. 21, 6-8 p.m. This is the third community meeting focused on receiving feedback about the Power IRP, a long-range blueprint for supplying reliable and environmentally responsible electricity at competitive rates over a 25-year-period. 

PWP has developed IRPs for more than 20 years to address the fundamental goals of maintaining a reliable power supply portfolio. This includes meeting customer needs while minimizing electric rate impacts and volatility, and meeting or exceeding sustainability goals and mandates. PWP produces an IRP every five years as required by law and issues periodic, voluntary updates when necessary. 

Residential and commercial customers are invited to attend the meeting, ask questions, and join the discussion. To stay up to date on Power IRP news, including recordings of past meetings, click below.
