Resource Planning and Management

Our communities—from homes, to schools, to businesses—depend on us each day to deliver reliable energy. With approximately 1.4 million customers across the state, we know how important it is to look at the big picture for today and tomorrow. That’s why we’re embarking on an ambitious goal to deliver 100% clean, carbon-free and affordable electricity to our customers by 2050. Our commitment to clean energy is our commitment to Arizona.

Integrated Resource Plan

Bold energy goals require ambitious plans and sound resource management. Together with our team of resource experts, energy planners and input from cross-sector stakeholders, we’ve worked to develop a strategic roadmap on our path to a 100% carbon-free generation mix by 2050. Our Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) lays out how we plan to serve our customers’ energy needs for the next 15 years, which includes an interim target of achieving a 65% clean energy mix by 2030. We’re focused on integrating renewable resources, empowering customers with flexible energy efficiency options and incorporating advanced technology to produce 100% clean and affordable energy—all while providing reliable service and remaining good stewards of Arizona’s diverse environment.

Here's how we plan to take our commitment to clean energy to the next level:
  • Eliminate the use of coal in energy generation by 2031
  • Add more solar paired with storage to harness Arizona’s sunshine
  • Continue to invest in vital carbon-free resources like nuclear energy from Palo Verde Generating Station 
  • Engage customers through expanded energy efficiency programs and smart energy choices

Resource Planning Advisory Council (RPAC)


The APS Resource Planning Advisory Council (RPAC) was formed in early 2021 as a diverse set of stakeholders to collaborate with APS in the development of the Company’s 2023 IRP. In light of the rapidly changing energy environment evident across the country and in particular in Arizona, the APS RPAC was created to infuse additional group participation and transparency to the IRP process. APS welcomes the participation of RPAC in the IRP process and looks forward to working with this Group throughout the IRP cycle. Contact us at rpac@aps.com
