Grays Harbor PUD Integrated Resource Plan

EES Consulting prepared Grays Harbor’s 2020 Integrated Resource Plan. Grays Harbor is required to submit an IRP to the state of Washington every two years that demonstrates how it will meet the electric power needs of its members with a reliable supply of power delivered in the most cost-effective manner. The 2020 IRP was an evaluation of resource alternatives that could be deployed to meet Grays Harbor’s load and meet state of Washington renewable energy requirements under the Energy Independence Act and carbon-free energy requirements under the Clean Energy Transformation Act. Grays Harbor embarked on an IRP to study alternative sources of supply that could best serve its customers’ needs for the period 2021-2040.
