Join us to participate in the process

An Integrated Resource Plan, or IRP, is a blueprint developed every five years to help forecast when power resources will be needed, what the optimal resource mix may look like and how LES will bring it together to best serve its customers in the future.

LES is developing a new plan in 2022 – the first IRP guided by LES’ decarbonization goal – and is requesting customer interaction and feedback to help support the process. You are invited to attend the upcoming public meetings and workshops, email your feedback or request LES to speak with your group or organization.

See the public meeting and workshop details below.
