PWP's Power Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is the long-range blueprint for providing our customers with reliable, environmentally responsible electric service, competitive rates and energy independence over the next two decades. The IRP takes into account future energy demand, advances in renewable energy resources and technology, energy efficiency, conservation, forecast changes in regulatory requirements, among other considerations.
The IRP is developed with input from various stakeholder groups to ensure it reflects the community's shared vision for its locally-owned public utility. Throughout the drafting of each IRP, PWP encourages public participation and feedback through attendance at public meetings and submission of comments and questions to staff. The City’s Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) and Municipal Services Committee (MSC) are updated throughout the development process and provide recommendations to the City Council before it is adopted.
This event is the first in a three-part series of future IRP events this year. We’re calling it our “Energy Roadmap.” Pasadena residents and business can chat with PWP about the IRP process. Plus, be the first to screen PWP's new “Energy Roadmap” video series! Event topics will include: Why Pasadena needs an Energy Roadmap/IRP Where Pasadena’s energy comes from and how it gets to you Renewable and conventional energy sources Setting Pasadena’s future energy goals
Event Details: RSVP required. The 1-hour event will be held at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 Movie Theaters.
PLEASE NOTE: The Saturday, Aug. 30 event is now completely FULL. If you were unable to attend, we will be posting the Energy Roadmap videos online in early September.
Your opinion counts! Please be sure to take a quick ten minute survey to let us know what you think about the future of Pasadena's energy portfolio.
PWP has initiated a process to review and refresh the power IRP for the 2015-2034 planning period. The purpose of the IRP is to evaluate and optimize PWP’s portfolio of energy supply resources, including energy efficiency and demand response, in order to meet our customer’s electric needs while balancing various critical but sometimes competing objectives including system reliability, fiscal responsibility, and environmental stewardship.
There are a number of important regulatory, market and infrastructure issues and changes that need to be reviewed and addressed in this 2014 IRP Update. PWP will work with a Stakeholder Technical Advisory Group with representatives appointed by the Mayor from a broad cross-section of constituencies. PWP will again utilize its website, customer surveys, and a series of public meetings to ensure a robust public involvement process.
The key policy and tactical issues that will be addressed in the 2014 IRP Update include, but are not limited to:
