Integrated Resource Plans

Assessing our future needs

BPUB strives to maintain an adequate supply of generation to meet its load and serve its customers and regularly performs a load forecast and an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), generally every five years or as needed.

The objective of any Integrated Resource Plan is to develop a recommended course of action for generation capacity, fuel supply, and transmission capacity that provides the utility with the least cost solution that meets its reliability requirements and risk tolerance. Another important consideration implemented during the evaluation is BPUB's flexibility during the planning period to change direction as circumstances change.

Below are BPUB's most recent IRPs.
