Generation

SMMPA serves its members with a unique portfolio of generation resources that includes Sherco 3 (884 MW), the newest and cleanest coal-fired generating facility in Midwest, of which the Agency owns 41% (362 MW). Located in member communities and adding an extra measure of reliability to the mix are 236 MW of combustion turbines, diesel engines, small fossil-fired steam units and the Agency's renewable resources - biodiesel-fueled engines and its own wind turbines.
