Indianapolis Power & Light 2014 Integrated Resource Plan
Synapse was retained by Sierra Club to review Indianapolis Power & Light Company’s (IPL) 2014 IRP, provide comments and feedback to IPL throughout the stakeholder process, attend stakeholder meetings, and review the final IRP.
Synapse’s comments address the scenario structure and resource choice methodology used in the IRP. Synapse found that IPL developed arbitrary futures for its fleet that provide little insight into the true economics of each of its generating units, as the company failed to analyze the units on an individual basis. The comments also identify issues with IPL’s scenario input assumptions and its treatment of demand-side management resources.
