Integrated Resource Plan
Power Integrated Resource Plan
The City of Vernon has completed a study of comprehensive Integrated Resource Plan and will develop a Rate Design based on a Cost of Service. The results of these studies will guide the Utility’s decision making in the procurement of resources and delivery of services. The documents will be posted on this website as they are finalized.
VPU initially planned to post the draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) on October 8, 2018. This is to inform you that the posting will be delayed until mid to late October 2018.

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 50% 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. It 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.
