Energy Prices

The Southwest Power Pool (SPP), which controls transmission for electricity for the central part of the US, has issued a Resource Alert for the SPP footprint.  This is due to the expected cold weather for a large section of the Midwest, winter weather and the possible issues with outages that could come with this storm.  This is going to be in effect until Sunday, February 6 with February 3 and 4th being the two days that will affect our area the most.  At this time there are no shortages of power or any ask for conservation.  That being said, this is a large area event and the next couple days will likely result in higher prices do to demand.  The City encourages our customers to conserve where they can to help with cost of power we receive.  See the link for energy efficiency tips.

Stay tuned and if any changes come from SPP the City will post information.
