2024 Arkansas Integrated Resource Plan (IRP)

Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) will file its 2024 Integrated Resource Plan report with the Arkansas Public Service Commission in December 2024. The IRP is a 20-year plan that outlines the energy resources that SWEPCO plans to secure to serve its existing and future customers. The IRP serves to inform the Commission and interested parties about the anticipated costs and other considerations of various resource options, as well as SWEPCO's preferred plan. The plan does not commit to any specific investment decision, nor is it a commitment to a specific course of action. It is simply a snapshot of the future at a given point in time.

Stakeholder Engagement

SWEPCO established a stakeholder engagement process, pursuant to APSC rules providing for broad participation in the planning or review process before the plan is submitted to the APSC. SWEPCO's three objectives for the stakeholder engagement process are:

  • Listen: Understand resource planning concerns and objectives of stakeholders.
  • Inform: Increase stakeholder understanding of the IRP process, key assumptions and the challenges facing SWEPCO and the electric utility industry.
  • Consider: Provide a forum for productive stakeholder feedback at key points in the IRP process to inform SWEPCO's resource planning decision making.

Stakeholder Meeting 1

Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) is initiating its 2024 Integrated Resource Planning process and will host the first of two meetings with interested stakeholders on June 6, 2024, from 9:00 am to 11:30 am CST. This session will be a virtual event hosted on Microsoft Teams.

The meeting will inform stakeholders on SWEPCO's inputs, scenarios, and assumptions for completing the IRP and will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to provide early input into the process.

Materials for the session will be uploaded to SWEPCO's IRP webpage approximately 5 days before the meeting.
