The Georgia Public Service Commission approved Georgia Power’s 2022 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) at the end of last week. The plan is part of a requirement by the Public Service Commission to outline how the utility will provide energy to its 2.7 million customers over the next two decades. The plan’s long timeline allows for changing power plant resources and incorporates demographic data, load estimates and economic growth.

“As Georgia continues to grow and the energy landscape continues to evolve, it’s incredibly important that we keep making the smart investments needed for our customers to have clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy for decades to come. The approval of our latest Integrated Resource Plan helps us do just that,” said Chris Womack, chairman, president and CEO of Georgia Power. “Working constructively with the Georgia Public Service Commission, we are committed to building the future of energy for our state, and these investments in our electric grid and energy infrastructure will help ensure that every customer, whether at home or running a business, has the energy they need to thrive.”
