IUB reviewing utilities' winter preparedness plans

The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) issued an order that requests information on Iowa electric utilities’ plans for addressing potential electric service load shedding on peak usage days for the winter season. The IUB is taking this action following a federal report issued in November that indicates a large portion of the North American Bulk Power System is at risk of insufficient electricity supplies during peak winter conditions. The order opened Docket No. INU-2022-0002 to address the issues and required the utilities to file replies to IUB questions by December 14, 2022. The IUB is reviewing the filed information and will determine next steps in this docket.
