Energy Planning and Management Program, 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.
