Where Does Lehi City Get Its Power?

Lehi City is a member of the Utah Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) organization which is cooperative of 45 member utilities throughout the Intermountain Region. Each participating UAMPS member chooses which energy resource projects to participate in. The power is then distributed (wheeled) over PacifiCorp’s main transmission system throughout the State. At the present time, Lehi is an owner in and receives energy from the following projects:

  • Hunter II; a coal fired, steam-electric generating unit in Emery County , Utah
  • San Juan; a coal fired, steam-electric generating plant in Farmington , New Mexico
  • IPP; a coal fired, steam-electric generating plant in Delta, Utah
  • Colorado River Storage Project; a series of federally owned and operated hydroelectric generating stations located along the Colorado River (Flaming Gorge, Glen Canyon )
  • Payson Project; a combined cycle gas-fired generating facility in Payson , Utah
  • PPM Energy; an energy contract to purchase power from the wind generating stations near Evanston , Wyoming
  • Member Generation; a forged partnership with other UAMPS members that own diesel or natural gas-fired generators
