Flexible Path Resource Plan

ROOTED IN A STABLE FOUNDATION:

Our core business initiative is to responsibly manage a diverse and dynamic power generation portfolio. Over the years, as new technologies have emerged, we have positioned ourself and our community to benefit from those new technologies while providing our customers with reliable, safe, secure and resilient services.

COMMITTED TO OUR GOALS. FLEXIBLE IN OUR METHODS.

As we build our path for the future, we understand that we need to stay flexible to continuously meet the needs of our community. 

Our goals include:

  • Close two older coal plants (Deely) in 2018 - GOAL ACCOMPLISHED 
  • Position to integrate new and emerging technologies like battery storage and electric vehicles
  • Continue to expand our solar and wind resources
  • Add more programs and services like energy efficiency and demand response

Years ago we started the process to reduce our coal and gas use and increase our renewables. By 2040, we are predicting even larger decreases in older technologies and exponentially larger increases in newer and cleaner technologies.
