In this paper, an improved genetic algorithm (IGA) is presented to determine the generation expansion planning of the utility in a deregulated market. The utility has to take both the IPPs' participation and environment impact into account when a new generation is expanded. The CO2emission also took into account, while satisfying all electrical constraints simultaneously. IGA was conducted by an improved crossover and mutation mechanism with a competition and autoadjust scheme to avoid prematurity. Tabu lists with heuristic rules were also employed in the searching process to enhance the performance. Testing results shows that IGA can offer an efficient way in determining the generation expansion planning. Results can offer utilities for determining the optimal expansion planning.
