Integrated Resource Plan

Mossyrock – One of Seven of Our Dams

The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is a tool to help Tacoma Power plan for an uncertain future so we can continue to meet our customers’ needs for decades to come. Approximately every four years, we complete a full refresh of the IRP. We also revisit and make small updates to the plan between the larger refresh years. Our last full IRP refresh was conducted in 2015, and an update was completed in 2017.

The 2020 IRP is available for public comment and will be brought to the Public Utility Board for approval on August 12. We encourage you to comment on the 2020 IRP either by emailing the IRP manager or submitting your comments in the form below. You may attend the virtual Public Utility Board meeting on August 12 and make comments or submit them directly to the Public Utility Board via email by 2 p.m. on August 11.

Public Input Process

We welcome input from our community and hold a public input process as part of the development of each IRP. Our 2020 IRP process centered around a series of four half-day workshops with a stakeholder working group between late February and late June. Workshops are now complete. Workshop materials and records are available below.

The 2020 IRP is available for public comment and will be brought to the Public Utility Board for approval on August 12. You are encouraged to comment on the 2002 IRP either by contacting the IRP manager or by submitting comments using the above form. You may attend the virtual Public Utility Board meeting on August 12 and make comments or submit them directly to the Public Utility Board via email by 2 p.m. on August 11.
