MMPA takes a long-term approach to power supply planning that includes assembling a diversified portfolio of owned and purchased generation containing both conventional and renewable resources. The Agency’s power supply portfolio includes water, wind, biomass, and natural gas to generate electricity.
MMPA is committed to generating energy in an environmentally sustainable manner. Please visit our Sustainable Energy page for more information.
MMPA’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) was filed with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission on December 20, 2013. It describes our power supply needs and alternative resources. Click here to read MMPA’s 2013 IRP.
