Reliable and cost-effective electricity is at the heart of everything we do at Roseville Electric Utility. A key component of maintain reliable service and affordable electricity is our long-term planning.

Every five years, Roseville Electric Utility develops an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). The IRP is comprised of an assessment of the future electric needs and a plan to meet those future needs.  It is “integrated” in that it looks at both demand side resources such as conservation and energy efficiency as well as the more traditional supply side resources such as power plants and transmission lines in making its recommendations on how best to meet future electric energy needs here in the City of Roseville.

As with everything we do, we align our planning process with City Council’s priorities while working to meet regulatory requirements.

We consider a number of criteria when creating the IRP. Common questions include:

  • Will the customer base grow?
  • What’s the demand?
  • Do we have enough generation capability?
  • What will we do in case of emergency, if our plant goes down, etc.?

Some of our challenges in the next five years include:

  • Meeting California’s green energy mandates
  • Zero Net Energy homes
  • An increase in electric vehicle adoption
  • An evolution in peak demand

This process is important because it provides transparency to you, our customers, by showing how we are investing in green technology, fossil fuels, and other resources, and gives the public a way to comment on the strategy.
