WAPA » Power Marketing » EPAMP, IRP


​The Energy Policy Act of 1992 requires Western Area Power Administration’s long-term firm power customers to prepare integrated resource plans.

To implement this requirement, in 1995, WAPA published a final rule, adopting​ the Energy Planning and Management Program. EPAMP set out the IRP requirements and established a framework for marketing long-term firm hydroelectric power under the Power Marketing Initiative.

The PMI extends existing firm power resource commitments and provides project-specific resource pools of power that can be allocated to new customers.

Projects covered by EPAMP’s PMI include:

Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program

Loveland Area Projects

Salt Lake City Area/Integrated Projects 

Central Valley Project


Parker-Davis Project 

Boulder Canyon power is under contract until 2017. WAPA will consider applying EPAMP to this project nearer to the time these contracts expire.
