POWER SUPPLY RESOURCES

WPPI Energy's focus is to ensure a flexible, reliable, affordable power supply. As a not-for-profit joint action agency, we make decisions based on the long-term needs of our member utilities and their customers – and that's reflected in our power supply portfolio. 


We operate a 24-hour operations center to dispatch power supply resources and optimize their use through sales to and purchases from our regional transmission organization, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, Inc. (MISO). Our resources include:
