Integrated Resource Plan

Alabama Power produces an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) every three years. This is a comprehensive road map used by management to make decisions to provide reliable and affordable electricity to meet the needs of customers. The IRP process analyzes Alabama Power’s future generation resource needs, including: all types of new generation resources, significant changes in generation, equivalent demand-side resources, and the expectation for new capacity needs, environmental emission limitations and the process by which we determine the optimal mix of those projected additions.
