PacifiCorp eyes renewables as it plans to stop burning coal at most of its Wyoming plants
April 5, 2023
Wyoming’s largest power company is shifting toward renewables and away from coal; however, the state is still planning a future that includes fossil fuels.
PacifiCorp, also known as Rocky Mountain Power in Wyoming, released its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) late last week. It is a 20-year look at the future, and shows that the company’s future energy sources will largely be wind, solar and possibly nuclear. The electric company serves about 144,000 customers in Wyoming, in addition to nearly 2 million in Utah, Idaho, California, Oregon and Washington.
