Resource Planning



Tri-State is committed to meeting the electricity needs of its 44 member electric cooperatives. Tri-State participates in a resource planning process, which includes a plan filed every four years beginning in 2010, with updates made to the plan each year. The planning process involves projecting future needs, assessing the existing assets available to meet those needs and identifying any resource gap so that Tri-State can continue to provide reliable and affordable electricity.


Planning for resources involves developing and assessing alternative scenarios based on a range of growth rates, resource costs, capital costs, types of generation resources, energy efficiency programs, levels of emissions, water usage and other considerations. The various alternative resource plans are compared on the basis of cost, environmental characteristics and other factors.

Operating under the cooperative principles, Tri-State seeks to keep members and the public informed.  Your participation in this process is encouraged.
