3 Reliability To meet customers electric energy requirements on time. Factors impacting reliability Customer Requirements Transmission, Generation and Distribution availability Weather Neighboring systems
10 APS fuel supply plan is characterized by Diverse fuel types Firm contracts Futures and options contracts Spot market transactions Duel fuel burning capacity at existing gas fired plants Fuel Supply Plan
11 Fuel Supply Continued Projected annual fuel consumption
12 Length of Supply and delivery contracts Fuel Supply Continued Coal: 2004 - 2011 Depending on plant Natural Gas: Firm supply contracts - 2004 with 100% coverage through 2002; transport 2013 Nuclear: 100% coverage through 2003; evaluating proposals for 2004 to 2008

17 Conclusions Transmission additions are critical. APS fuel sources are secure and diverse. Future new generation is critical.
18 Conclusions (cont.) APS has and will acquire the resources necessary to achieve reliable system operations in 2001 and 2002 Although the APS plans meet the forecast reliability requirements, unforeseen events such as violent storms, extreme hot spells,equipment failures and construction delays can threaten the security and adequacy of the electric power system.
