Xcel Energy’s Clean Energy Future – an overview of its recent Integrated Resource Plan

The presentation comments will explain what an IRP is, it’s importance, what we have done to date, and the process going forward. I will use a slide deck to organize my comments and spur conversation. I will also likely touch on the issue of equity and the utility’s role of guaranteeing universal access, non-discriminatory pricing, and service quality standards.
