By 2025 we anticipate Arizona’s energy needs will be 50% higher than today. We plan to meet 65% of that growth in demand with renewable energy and energy efficiency. The 2012 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is our strategic road map for securing these reliable, cost-effective energy resources. It provides a framework for the future to ensure we continue providing reliable, affordable service and manageable risks.
During the 2013-2027 planning period, we’ll enlist a full spectrum of resources – from our current low-cost coal fleet to innovative new energy solutions – to continue serving our customers.
ACC resource planning rules require us to file our resource plans for the next 15-year period by April 1 of each even-numbered year.
