Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — Officials from the Kansas Power Pool will visit a Wellington City Council work session at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the council chambers to talk about all things electric. Council members had asked them to come explain how it all works, and the meeting is open to the public.Wellington has an electrical power plant, and is part of the Kansas Power Pool, which is part of a greater alliance of power entities. There are four major regional ones in the United States, and they control things like how much power is needed.Recently electric rates were raised and that raised a lot of concern. The electric charge was raised 30 percent, but that does not include the power adjustment charge which is passed through to the Kansas Power Pool.That power adjustment charge is based on things like costs of fuel and other economic factors. It has been lower over the past few months, and that has actually reduced many electric bills. The rate increase does not start until January 2016, but if the power charge adjustment cost stays low, people may not see that much of an increase.Roger Estes, with the Wellington electric department, said that power adjustment changes each month and it is impossible to say for sure what it will be in coming months, but based on fuel cost being low, he said it is possible it could remain low over the next several months.Wellington is part of the Kansas power pool for another 18 years, and cities do not have to stay members. But there is a pooling of resources that can help. On the national level, Wellington money may be going to help with infrastructure in Louisiana, but at the same time, people in Louisiana may be helping pay for infrastructure in Wellington. That is all part of the power charge adjustment as well.Wellington’s plant runs when it is needed by the Kansas Power Pool, and by the larger group. It ran a lot in September. It can also run if there is a major power outage. Estes said a few years ago it was able to keep Wellington powered during an ice storm when some surrounding towns were without power.The Wellington plant can generate 40 megawatts, which would power Wellington easily. They have a gas turbine which can be started up quickly. There is also a steam generator that takes about a day to get going.City officials hope to get to run their plants more, and to be called on more to produce power. If they can reduce costs that will help in that area.Electricity is one of the few utilities that generate income for the city. Transferring too much money out over the years has depleted reserves and put the city in a bind, but city officials note that money is transferred all the time by most cities. It is just that Wellington may have gone overboard.Cities that do not have power plants, and rely on Westar or some other electric company, charge the company a franchise fee and that means income. Transferring money from the utility has the same effect. Wellington city government is saying it will not transferring as much in the future.But if they can make their plant more marketable, they will be called on more to produce energy and that could mean more money for the city.Estes explained though, that electricity is not a commodity that can be stored. That is one reason there are power pools, so electricity can be generated to react to demand. If you make a lot more electricity than you need, it just goes away.In 2014, the City of Wellington made about $100,000 on electricity, and about $90,000 is anticipated for 2015.The rate increase was drastic, but the city had not raised rates in several years. They have also built in a yearly increase now, so there should not be a huge jump again. The city has the option each year of not taking the increase. If the power adjustment charge remains low, and if it can sell more electricity on the national grid, that yearly increase may not have to happen.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
