DEEP: Integrated Resource Planning

Integrated Resource Plan
Connecticut General Statutes section 16a-3a requires that the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) prepare an Integrated Resource Plan every two years. An Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is comprised of an assessment of the future electric needs and a plan to meet those future needs.  It is “integrated” in that it looks at both demand side (conservation, energy efficiency, etc.) resources as well as the more traditional supply side (generation/power plants, transmission lines, etc.) resources in making its recommendations on how best to meet future electric energy needs in the state.
