Planning for our future.

As we plan for our long-term energy future, we need to answer many questions, such as what changes technology will bring and what customers will expect — and want — from Nova Scotia Power. These are all pieces of the puzzle as we work on our 2020 Integrated Resource Plan — a process that will consider options for delivering affordable electricity for the long-term, while we also meet evolving environmental commitments.

What is the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP)?

The IRP is a strategic guide for how current and future electricity customers may be served.

Nova Scotia Power is responsible for developing the IRP, which must be filed with the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (UARB). As the future development of the electrical network impacts a wide variety of stakeholders, input and participation is key.

The IRP process engages our stakeholders every step of the way:
