Every three years VEC files an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) with the Public Utilities Commission. Our draft plan, which was filed in July 2019, details how VEC will meet the needs of its members, by identifying the least-cost, most reliable strategies. VEC’s mission is to serve our members with safe, reliable, and affordable energy services. This plan presents a continued path to ensuring excellence, balance, and flexibility. As our electrical systems become more complex, we must become increasingly thoughtful about our investments. We hope our members and other stakeholders will read the draft IRP and provide us with feedback.

You can submit comments to the Public Utility Commission (file under case number 19-3042-PET) by November 15, 2019. Please contact us with any questions: 1-800-832-2667 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
