Every three years, Georgia Power updates its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), determining how they will invest funds from their 2.7 million customers over the following two decades. This plan largely determines which energy sources and programs are available to Georgians and at what environmental and financial cost. Georgia Power is our state’s largest utility, and the decisions that will be finalized in a few short months will have far-reaching impacts on Georgia’s energy future. It is crucial that the plan reflects residents’ needs and priorities within the context of our evolving marketplace and warming climate.
Georgia Power filed the 2022 IRP with the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) on January 31. Stakeholders and the public now have a valuable opportunity to advocate for clean energy improvements before the PSC votes on the plan this July. So, what are we working with? Southface Institute Advocacy Program Director Katie Southworth unboxes the plan:
