Colorado Rule 3627 Final Stakeholder Outreach and FERC Order 890 Stakeholder Meeting
Meeting date and time: Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019 - 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. (Mountain Prevailing Time)
Location: Tri-State Headquarters, 1100 W. 116th Avenue, Westminster, Colorado, in the Hub Thompson Conference room.
Objectives: This meeting is intended to provide stakeholders another opportunity to participate in Tri-State’s transmission planning process. Much of the information has or will also be presented at Colorado Coordinated Planning Group (CCPG) meetings.
Stakeholders will be able to provide input in connection with Tri-State’s long-range transmission plans. Such input and relevant alternatives will be considered and included in the appropriate biennial transmission plans submitted to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission pursuant to Commission Rule 3627, as developed in partnership with the Colorado Coordinated Planning Group.
2019 ERP/IRP Meeting cancellation
This to notify stakeholders that the July 2nd ERP/IRP public meeting is cancelled.
Senate Bill 236 which reauthorized the CPUC also included language that caused Tri-State to become jurisdictional under the CPUC for resource planning. It is uncertain how and when the rulemaking will occur to establish the new requirements and timing for Tri-State’s resource planning. Because the new law has been signed, thus establishing the potential for an entirely new process, Tri-State filed with the PUC seeking a variance from the old resource planning rules as we prepare for the new rules. With that, we will cancel our July 2nd ERP/IRP public meeting. We will reengage the public process as soon as we know the schedule that will be developed at the PUC under a rulemaking process. We anticipate the rulemaking will be fast tracked with the new process beginning later in 2019 or early in 2020.
2019 ERP/IRP Public Meeting
Meeting date and time: Wednesday, March 27, 2019; from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Location: Tri-State Headquarters, 1100 W. 116th Avenue, Westminster, Colorado 80234
Objectives: Tri-State will host the first of three 2019 Electric Resource Plan (ERP) and Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) public meetings on Wednesday, March 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at our headquarters building in Westminster, Colo. Tri-State representatives will be providing an overall background on Tri-State loads, resources and planning, as well as an update of resource changes that have been implemented or announced since the 2015 ERP/IRP process. A timeline for the 2019 ERP/IRP process will be provided. The full agenda for the meeting will be posted on the Tri-State webpage in early March.
Tri-State is required to file a new ERP every four years with the PUC in Colorado and a new IRP every five years with WAPA. As part of this process, Tri-State will be holding three public meetings in 2019. Filed in 2015, the most recent ERP/IRP can be a found here along with other material related to our resource planning efforts.
