Platte River Power Authority’s continual planning process supports strategic thinking and the development of adaptive strategies for the future. Our 2017 - 2027 Strategic Plan covers a ten-year planning horizon and is updated annually as detailed analyses of future scenarios are completed, new technologies evolve, and market opportunities develop.
Integrated Resource Plan
Resource planning is a continuous and dynamic process at Platte River. As part of this process, Platte River develops an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). Normally produced every five years, the IRP is a critical tool for ensuring an adequate supply of reliable, low-cost, and environmentally-responsible electricity to meet the future needs of our owner communities. It details Platte River’s plans in the areas of generation and transmission projects, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.
As you read the most recent edition of Platte River’s IRP (2016), please keep in mind that it represents a view of conditions as they stood when it was written. Many of the issues and assumptions presented will change as our owner communities’ needs and available resource options evolve. The next IRP is scheduled for completion in fall 2021.
As part of a broader strategic planning initiative, Platte River conducted public listening sessions and an interactive webinar during spring 2014 to gather the thoughts and preferences of citizens regarding future electricity resource alternatives.
