Integrated Resource Plan
Learn more about Tacoma’s power supply and how we are planning to meet our future energy needs.
Tacoma Power recently updated our Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). The IRP helps us assess a portfolio of available generation and conservation resources. This analysis ensures we have sufficient power resources to meet our customers’ long-term needs.
As part of the development process for the 2017 IRP, the public was invited to participate by attending our stakeholder sessions. We held two sessions, one on April 19 and another on September 27, 2017, where we discussed Tacoma Power’s loads and resources as well as our opportunities and challenges ahead.
Contact Ahlmahz Negash at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the IRP process.
