LIPA’s 2023 Integrated Resource Plan

Please note that the 2023 Integrated Resource Plan (2023 IRP) was previously entitled the 2022 Integrated Resource Plan (2022 IRP) but was renamed to match the year of release.

PSEG Long Island, as agent of and acting on behalf of LIPA, developed the 2023 Integrated Resource Plan (2023 IRP) for Long Island’s, including the Rockaways’, power grid, and the final results were presented by LIPA’s Staff to its Board of Trustees (BoT) on November 15, 2023. The 2023 IRP builds on previous work and identifies the actions needed to continue the path towards compliance with New York State’s nation-leading clean energy legislative goals.

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 built on previous work and sought to examine the impact of CLCPA requirements, and other potential electricity market changes, during the study period of 2023 – 2040.  The IRP resulted in an action plan for the period through 2030 and recommended 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 included:
