System Planning

Northwest electric utilities see the region’s need for power continuing to grow, and the system the region has depended on for decades is reaching the bounds of its capability. Utilities are rising to the challenge of maintaining a reliable, affordable flow of electricity to meet customer’s needs while adhering to changing state and federal regulations regarding renewable power generation. They are seeking out new resources, like wind and solar, and energy conservation programs to meet the region’s need for power ensuring our future power system retains the dependability we expect.
