LIPA’s 2022 Integrated Resource Plan

PSEG Long Island, as agent of and acting on behalf of LIPA, has commenced the development of the 2022 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) for Long Island’s, including the Rockaways’, power grid.  The IRP will build on previous work and identify the actions needed to continue on the path towards compliance with New York State’s nation-leading clean energy legislative goals. 

The IRP will have a study period of 2022 – 2040 and will provide an action plan for the period of 2022 – 2030.  The development of the IRP is expected to extend from June 2021 to final report issuance in Q3 of 2022.

Background & IRP Objectives

In July 2019, New York State enacted one of the most aggressive clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction laws in the country, the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), which includes, among other goals, a requirement that 70% of electricity consumed in the state by 2030 be produced from renewable energy; the development of 6,000 MW of distributed solar by 2025, 3,000 MW of energy storage by 2030, and 9,000 MW of offshore wind by 2035; and 100% zero-carbon electricity generation by 2040.  

CLCPA requirements will have a significant impact on the supply and demand of electricity in Long Island and in the rest of New York State. LIPA’s IRP will build on previous work and seek to examine the impact of CLCPA requirements, and other potential electricity market changes, during the study period of 2022 – 2040.  The IRP will result in an action plan for the period of 2022 – 2030 that will recommend key actions and investments needed to meet state goals, while continuing to meet the electricity needs of its customers reliably and cost-effectively. 

Key objectives for LIPA’s IRP include:
