Idaho Power’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) examines the the company’s projected need for additional electricity over the next 20 years and the resources that will best meet that need while balancing reliability, cost, environmental responsibility, efficiency and risk. The plan is updated every two years and includes a series of public meetings that help guide our planning process.
Idaho Power enlists the assistance of its customers in developing the IRP through an advisory panel — the Integrated Resource Plan Advisory Council (IRPAC).
The IRPAC consists of major industrial customers, the environmental community, irrigation representatives, state and local elected officials, public utility commission representatives and other interested parties.
The IRPAC meets with Idaho Power regularly over a period of several months during the development of the company’s IRP. These meetings are public. The advisory council’s responsibilities include:
- Representing the interests of Idaho Power’s more than 610,000 customers
- Participating in open and active discussions of relevant issues, and
- Working with Idaho Power to develop ways to engage the public in the IRP process.
IRPAC meetings are virtual and open to the public. Opportunities for input are provided at each meeting. The next meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Mountain Time on March 9. You can attend the meeting via Webex using this link.
