Power plant to be built around generators
July 9, 2003
Baldwin City’s future power-generating capabilities took a quantum leap forward last week when 6,300 kilowatt worth of engines were hauled in and placed at the new station in southwest Baldwin. The two engines came in on separate days, one Tuesday and the other Wednesday, bringing 3,165 Kw in power potential with them. The $5.4 million generating plant project is expected to be completed by March or April of 2004 and will provide the city’s power needs into the near future. “When both of these new units are up and running next year, we’ll be close to 11,000 kilowatt capacity,” said Terry McKinney, city utility director. “It’ll meet our needs for a few years, based on where we’re at now with 8,000 kilowatt peak usage. That demand will go higher, depending on how many new homes are hooked up.”
