Minnesota Power presents for approval its 2013 Integrated Resource Plan (“2013 Plan” or “Plan”) pursuant to the requirements set forth in the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission’s (“Commission”) Orders dated May 6, 2011 and September 13, 2012 in Docket No. E015/RP-09-1088. This Plan is being filed under Minn. Stat. § 216B.2422 and Minn. Rules Chapter 7843.
Minnesota Power’s 2013 Plan is focused on a balanced approach to delivering safe, reliable service at the lowest possible cost to customers while protecting and improving the region and state’s quality of life through continued environmental stewardship. It continues the transition of Minnesota Power’s fleet to become more diverse, more flexible and less emitting with additional major steps that address a changing energy landscape and respond to the Commission’s Orders in Minnesota Power’s previous integrated resource plan docket. Minnesota Power’s short-term action plan during the five-year period of 2013 through 2017 is comprised of steps that will: a) preserve competitive base load generating resources while reducing emissions, b) continue implementation of least cost demand side resources including conservation, c) reduce reliance on coal fired generation, d) reduce carbon intensity on Minnesota Power’s system and e) add renewable energy and transmission infrastructure to the benefit of customers. The Company’s long-term action plan strategy will focus on further reducing carbon emissions in its portfolio and reshaping its generation mix towards a balance of approximately one-third renewable resources, one-third efficient coal-fired generation and one-third natural gas/other sources.
