Integrated Resource Plan
The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is a comprehensive look at present and future demands for electricity, as well as a plan for meeting those demands.
The IRP describes the company’s projected need for additional electricity and the resources necessary to meet that need while balancing reliability, environmental responsibility, efficiency and cost.
Idaho Power enlists the assistance of its customers in developing the IRP through an advisory council—the Integrated Resource Plan Advisory Council (IRPAC).
The IRPAC consists of members of the environmental community, major industrial customers, irrigation representatives, state legislators, public utility commission representatives and other interested parties.
The council's responsibilities include:
- Representing the interests of Idaho Power's more than 500,000 customers
- Participating in open and active discussions of relevant issues, and
- Working with Idaho Power to develop ways to engage the public-at-large in the IRP process.
IRPAC meetings are open to the public. An opportunity for public comment is provided at each meeting.
