Our Plans

We are modernizing our generation fleet – retiring old coal units and transitioning to cleaner, more efficient energy sources. With help from independent experts, we continue to make significant progress closing coal ash basins in ways that put safety first, protect the environment, minimize impact to communities and manage costs.
