Developing and constructing electric generation resources is a process that takes many years to complete. Our approach has always been to make decisions that are the best for the long term. We have built resources as our demand has increased in a way that demonstrates a conservative approach and avoids overbuilding. We currently have nine different generation sources which use a mix of fuel types. This diversity has allowed us to minimize risk and to build in resources in a way that minimizes financial burden to our customers. To continue that level of success, we need to make decisions and take actions very soon to plan effectively for the future.
