Agency dedicates Owatonna Energy Station

Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency hosted an open house Wednesday, August 8, 2018, to dedicate its new 38.8 MW Owatonna Energy Station. The generation facility is the most recent addition to SMMPA’s power supply portfolio, and it replaces a facility that was damaged by the 201 Straight River flood.


This is the second energy station owned and operated by SMMPA. In 2013 the Agency built the 25 MW Fairmont Energy Station.
