MONDAY, OCT 27, 6:00 PM–MEMBERS INVITED TO ENERGY PLANNING

PEC members invited to forum Monday, Oct. 27, on Integrated Resource Planning Development
The purpose of the Co-op’s IRP will be to describe the portfolio of energy resources that PEC plans to use to meet current and future needs for energy at the lowest reasonable cost to Co-op members.

Pedernales Electric Cooperative is currently developing a long-term integrated resource plan (IRP) and has hired independent consulting firm Burns & McDonnell to analyze the Co-op’s current and forecasted energy requirements and develop resource plan options for consideration by PEC’s Board of Directors.

The purpose of the Co-op’s IRP will be to describe the portfolio of energy resources that PEC plans to use to meet current and future needs for energy at the lowest reasonable cost to Co-op members. To complete the IRP, Burns & McDonnell will identify and examine PEC’s power supply, generation and conservation requirements while ensuring members continue to receive reliable, economical and sustainable service. Once completed, the IRP will help PEC establish a roadmap for ongoing power supply efforts.

On Oct. 27, PEC and Burns & McDonnell will host a member forum to outline the IRP process, answer related questions and gather member input. The forum will be held at PEC headquarters, 201 S. Ave. F in Johnson City, at 6 p.m. The event also will be streamed live atwww.pec.coop.

PEC members who have feedback regarding the IRP should send their name, service address, phone number and comments by midnight Nov. 3 to IRP@peci.com or to Pedernales Electric Cooperative, Attn: Integrated Resource Plan, P.O. Box 1, Johnson City, TX  78636.
