Addressing energy storage in Integrated Resource Plans

Based on legislation that passed in 2006, all municipal electric utilities must periodically produce some version of an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) – the exact requirements depend on the size of the utility. HB 1296 would require electric utilities to address energy storage in their IRPs. Prime sponsor Rep. Morris (D-Mount Vernon) held a stakeholder meeting and after listening to comments, may change the focus of this bill or introduce a different version of an IRP bill to address over-generation issues. Stay tuned.
