Integrated resource plan
Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is developing an integrated resource plan (IRP) that identifies how we provide cost-effective electricity to reliably meet our customers’ needs for the future. The 2021 IRP will outline PSE’s plans to eliminate coal from its electric portfolio of resources and transition to carbon free generation by 2045.
The 2021 IRP will be completed by April 2021. The Draft 2021 IRP will be available in January 2021.
The last IRP was filed in 2017. The 2019 IRP process did not result in an IRP filing. The materials from the 2019 IRP process are available along with a Progress Report which was filed with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) in November 2019.
How to Participate
PSE believes stakeholder input can and should improve the 2021 IRP. PSE will clearly identify where and how stakeholder input can inform the plan. Informing, involving and consulting stakeholders will help ensure that a comprehensive set of elements are considered in developing the long-term resource plan and the Clean Energy Action Plan.
For the 2021 IRP, PSE has developed a public participation plan that clarifies the role the public will play in the development of the IRP.
