Transmission Procurement

Transmission Grid

KPP’s generation resources are located across Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Nebraska, while KPP’s members are all in Kansas.  To connect the generation resources to KPP members’ load, KPP obtains transmission service from the Southwest Power Pool.  While KPP members are individually connected to transmission owned by Westar Energy, Midwest Energy, or Mid-Kansas Electric Company, transmission over all of these Kansas entities and transmission facilities is administered by the Southwest Power Pool (SPP). By taking transmission service under the SPP tariff, KPP can obtain generation service from suppliers throughout a 14-state region in the central United States, from the panhandle of Texas to the Canadian border, with no additional cost.
