Public Input Process
A critical element of PacifiCorp's planning process is the public input process. PacifiCorp has pursued an open and collaborative approach to involve the Commissions, customers and other stakeholders in PacifiCorp's planning prior to PacifiCorp making resource decisions. Since these decisions can have significant economic and environmental consequences, conducting the resource plan with transparency and full participation from the Commission and other interested and affected parties is essential.
The public has been involved in PacifiCorp's resource plans from the earliest stages and at each decisive step. Participants have both shared comments and ideas, as well as received information. As reflected in the 2004 IRP report, many of the comments provided by the participants have been adoptedby PacifiCorp and have helped contribute to the quality of this resource plan.
The cornerstone of the public input process has been full-day public input meetings, held approximately every six weeks throughout the yearlong plan development period. These meetings have been held jointly in two locations, Salt Lake City and Portland, using telephone and video conferencing technology, to encourage wide participation while minimizing travel burdens and respecting everyone's busy schedules.
