Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency

Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) is a not-for-profit joint-action agency formed in 1977 during a time of increasing demand for electricity. Member utilities united through joint action and rallied behind their shared purpose of securing a long-term energy solution. By using the collective strength of SMMPA, the Agency was able to invest in a long-term source of reliable and affordable power – Sherco 3.

Today, joint action remains a timeless solution for managing the challenges of a complex and dynamic industry. We’re diversifying our energy mix by adding clean burning natural-gas generation and renewable sources like the wind and solar. We’re strengthening the electric grid that delivers energy to homes, businesses and industry. And we’re helping customers find ways to understand, manage and reduce their energy use.
