City of Lebanon, IN Tours Prairie State

Officials from the City of Lebanon, Indiana visited campus on October 20 and 21 for a tour of the power plant and underground coal mine. The City of Lebanon is a member of the Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA), one of Prairie State's nine Owners. IMPA is a wholesale electric power provider serving the needs of 59 cities and towns in Indiana, as well as one community in Ohio. IMPA was formed so its member utilities could share power resources, allowing cities and towns to provide electricity more economically to their customers.

IMPA is governed by its members. Member utilities purchase their power requirements from IMPA and deliver that power to the residents and companies in their service territories. Altogether, IMPA members deliver electric service to approximately 330,000 individuals throughout Indiana and Ohio.
