NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON 2020 BIENNIAL
IRP REPORTS AND RELATED 2020 REPS
COMPLIANCE PLANS

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the North Carolina Utilities Commission (Commission) has scheduled a public hearing in conjunction with
the Commission’s review and evaluation of integrated resource planning (IRP) in North Carolina. The purpose of the review and evaluation is to
ensure that each regulated electric utility operating in North Carolina is developing reliable projections of the long-range demands for electricity
in its service area and is developing a combination of reliable resource options for meeting the anticipated demands in a cost-effective manner.
IRP is intended to identify those electric resource options, which can be obtained at least cost to ratepayers in North Carolina consistent with
adequate, reliable electric service. IRP considers conservation, efficiency, load management and other demand-side program alternatives in the
selection of resource options. Commission Rule R8-60 requires that each of the electric utilities furnish the Commission with a biennial report
in even-numbered years that contains the specific information set out in that Commission Rule. In odd-numbered years, each of the electric
utilities must file an update report updating its most recently filed biennial report. In addition, regulated electric utilities are required to include
their plans for meeting customer electric needs via renewable energy resources and energy efficiency programs by submitting a Renewable
Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard compliance plan (REPS compliance plan) as part of the IRP filing.
During the public hearing to be held in this docket, the Commission will receive testimony from nonexpert public witnesses with respect to
the most current IRP reports and REPS compliance plans filed in 2020 by Duke Energy Progress, LLC; Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC; and Virginia
Electric and Power Company, d/b/a Dominion Energy North Carolina. Public witness testimony will be received in accordance with Commission
Rule R1-21(g).
A night hearing for the convenience of public witnesses and solely for the purpose of taking nonexpert public witness testimony shall be held
by the Commission on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at 7 p.m. The hearing shall be conducted remotely via Webex. A link to view the hearing will be
available at ncuc.net.
Persons desiring to present testimony for the record must register in advance of the hearing, no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, March 11,
2021, by contacting the Public Staff via email at IRPPublicHearing@psncuc.nc.gov or by calling 866.380.9816. Testimony will be limited to five
minutes per individual.
Only individuals registered with the Public Staff by 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, 2021, will be allowed to testify at the hearing.
