Integrated Resource Plan

Every three years, Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) submits an Integrated Resource Plan to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) and Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). The 20-year forecast outlines I&M’s plan to serve existing and future customers in a reliable and economic manner.

Indiana Michigan Power will submit its 2021 Integrated Resource Plan with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission on or before November 1, 2021 and with the Michigan Public Service Commission on or before December 15, 2021.

The 2018-19 I&M Integrated Resource Plan is provided below:

Stakeholder Update - April 22, 2021

I&M would like IRP stakeholders to be aware of the plans announced by AEP on April 22, 2021 to add more than 16,500 MWs of renewable energy across AEP’s service area by 2030 (see below). I&M intends to engage stakeholders in the current IRP process to assist in the evaluation of the plan for I&M. AEP also announced that I&M and AEP Generating Company have agreed to acquire Rockport Unit 2 as a capacity resource to help bridge I&M’s capacity needs as I&M continues its orderly transition to more renewable resources. I&M expects the inclusion of Rockport 2 in I&M’s generation portfolio used to serve customers will be reviewed with state commissions and stakeholders in filings before the commissions and as part of the IRP process. The Rockport 2 agreement was reached after I&M decided to not renew the lease and began confidential discussions with the owners about how the unit would be operated after the lease ended. As those discussions progressed, I&M recognized that it would be beneficial to all concerned if I&M controlled the unit after the lease expired. The generation changes at AEP will help grow renewable generation to 51 percent of AEP’s total capacity by 2030, as the company works to achieve its goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Stakeholder Engagement

I&M has established a stakeholder engagement process to encourage questions, make suggestions and provide data. Interested parties are invited to participate in the planning or review process before the plan is submitted to the IURC and the MPSC.

There are three objectives for the stakeholder engagement process:

  • Listen: Understand resource planning concerns and objectives of stakeholders.
  • Inform: Increase stakeholder understanding of the Integrated Resource Plan process, key assumptions and the challenges facing I&M and the electric utility industry.
  • Consider: Provide a forum for productive stakeholder feedback at key points in the Integrated Resource Plan process to inform I&M ’s resource planning decision making.

Stakeholder Engagement Process

I&M will seek stakeholder participation throughout the IRP development process. At the core of the process is a series of four workshops. Please click on the registration links to sign up to participate in the workshops.
