Member advisory committee meeting coming near you

Thorntown Member Advisory Commitee Meeting
Joan Soller discussed power supply with the Member Advisory Committee at the Sugar Creek Art Center in Thorntown.

While the Member Advisory Committee (MAC) meeting was taking place in Thorntown, President and CEO Bill Conley told the crowd that Boone REMC had set a new record for peak usage.

“We hit 97 MW, which is 2 MW higher than our last peak back in August 2021,” Jeff Dickerson, VP of operations, said. 

Wabash Valley Power Alliance (WVPA) addressed reports that Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) recently released as a Summer Readiness Assessment news release. It outlined their projections for the next few months. The assessment highlighted the potential need for emergency procedures to keep the electric system in balance as well as the need for more resource flexibility to reliably generate and manage electricity during extreme weather.

WVPA assured guests that coordinated, temporary power outages are an absolute last step emergency measure implemented to protect the electric grid and MISO has never taken this step in Indiana, Illinois or Missouri.
