The City of Wamego is a member of Energy Management Project No. 3, through the Kansas Municipal Energy Agency. This allows for purchase of wholesale power through the Project, which offers a diverse portfolio of power options. This power is delivered to the City via an interconnection with the transmission grid. The City also has its own Power Plant, which provides local base load capacity to meet current peak loads throughout the City. The Plant generates electricity when there is a transmission disruption and whenever it can provide power more economically. The Electric Production Department operates and maintains the Plant’s nine duel fuel (natural gas/diesel) generating units, with a total nameplate capacity of 15,360 KW.
