Leadership from Black Hills Energy sought out and contracted with Solari to write the joint Wyoming and South Dakota 2021 Cheyenne Light and Black Hills Power Integrated Resource Plan. The IRP was supported by fifteen appendices.
Solari was chosen because of our extensive experience in planning and writing IRPs that incorporate increasing amounts of renewable generation onto the power grid.
Our tasks included outlining the energy-related topics that comprise the heart of a robust report; “modernizing” the document design and look and feel of the report; and researching, interviewing, and writing the core of the report. We worked closely with their Resource Planning manager and their Renewable Generation Asset manager—both of whom were gracious and kind throughout the entire process—to develop the depth of content of the report.
