The Lansing Board of Water & Light is hosting a series of Open Houses to gather feedback on the new Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which will guide the company’s actions to continue delivering cleaner, affordable and reliable power to the region for decades to come. Members of the public are invited to attend to ask questions and offer suggestions to help shape the IRP.
The final open house is tomorrow, Tuesday, November 19 from 9 a.m. to noon at the BWL REO Depot, 1201 S. Washington Ave., Lansing.
Every few years, electric utilities including the BWL, complete an IRP to determine how best to provide power to customers in the future. An IRP is a utility industry best-practice management tool that compels electric utilities to periodically examine customers’ demand for power and how best to meet it going forward. The result is a plan that will be presented to the BWL Board of Commissioners in January and that will guide the actions the company takes to continue delivering reliable, affordable and cleaner power to BWL customers.
