Greater Diversity and Excess Capacity
Unlike any other in the continental United States, the Greater Kansas City area enjoys a diverse energy supply. Throughout the Midwest, firms requiring significant energy resources will find a mix of coal, natural gas, nuclear wind and hydroelectric powered generation. It’s a unique “balance of power” among energy suppliers and supplies that eliminates over reliance on any single power source.
With an eye on the future, local energy providers have planned production to keep pace with the area’s growing needs and expectations. Fleets of modern and upgraded coal-fired plants power our vital commercial and residential communities, with back up from recently added gas-fired peaking generators. Together, they represent some of the most efficient, most reliable generation available anywhere.
Energy companies have capitalized on their abundant capacity by increasing wholesale sales across the regional power grid. This not only ensures reliability throughout the Midwest, it improves operating efficiencies for the utilities, a benefit they’re able to pass along to customers in the form of controlled, stable rates and competitively-priced service.
