Speaker:

 

Doug Brown, P.E.

Chief Utility Engineer

 

In 2018 the City of Springfield began a process for an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which would identify the best resource options for CWLP to provide reliable and competitively priced electrical power to meet Springfield's future energy needs. The Energy Authority, Inc. (TEA) has conducted the IRP by compiling and analyzing economic data of CWLP's existing electric resources along with the economic data of other options such as wind, solar, and natural gas combustion turbine.

 

The IRP recommends CWLP should retire Dallman 1,2 immediately and 3 in the next couple of years, but Dallman 4 should be retained, for now. Upon retirement of Dallman 3 CWLP will need to fine replacement energy and capacity. Issuing an RFP to buy market power, prior to Dallman

3's retirement appears to be the best option to meet that need today. It also indicates that CWLP should issue an RFP for renewable generation very soon, before the tax benefits are reduced. 

 

Over the long-run, the IRP indicates CWLP will see a shrinking coal fleet with increased reliance of Purchase Power Agreements (PPAs) supplemented with existing peaking units and an ever-increasing mix of renewables.


The future of CWLP and the future of Springfield are intertwined.  This is a very big deal!  Please join the 'conversation' on June 28 for the most up-to-date information, outstanding networking, and free coffee to boot.
