APS IRP Stakeholder Meeting
APS is hosting a series of Integrated Resource Plan stakeholder meetings in which the company presents some of the analyses that will go into the ultimate IRP process.
We are getting into the weeds, but the meetings provide a good opportunity to review the underlying assumptions and to discuss them with the APS personnel in charge of drafting that part of the plan.
Jeff Burke hosted and the meeting covered the company's assumptions about Demand Side Management, Electric Vehicle adoption and Natural Gas capacity.
The discussion of Natural Capacity was the most relevant. The bottom line is that the company believes that natural gas requirements in AZ and NM will remain strong in the short term, but are likely to decline as CA moves away from gas and towards its RPS goals and battery storage.
