The Power Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is Vernon’s 10-year blueprint for ensuring reliable and environmentally-responsible energy, at affordable rates. Our Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) of 60% by 2030 is VPU’s commitment to a sustainable energy future. This IRP will comply with Senate Bill 350 (de León), which was signed into law October 2015 and Senate Bill 100 (de León), which was signed into law September 2018. SB 350 requires utilities with load greater than 700 GWh, such as VPU, to develop an IRP by January 1, 2019 and update the IRP every five years. On August 9, 2017, the California Energy Commission issued IRP Guidelines. For more information, visit the CEC Requirements website.
