Our resource plan outlines what power resources are currently available to our members and how we consider new resources for the future. The plan also analyzes the future electricity needs of our members. We filed this plan with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission on Nov. 1, 2012.
On July 17, 2013, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission voted to not accept Great River Energy’s integrated resource plan. Our resource plan met all legal, statutory requirements, and we will carefully consider the commission’s comments in our future planning process. The commission’s decision is advisory and does not require us to take any action other than to file our next plan at the time we are required to file it – which is November 2014. Great River Energy’s existing generation resources are expected to meet our members’ needs for the foreseeable future.
