Coopera ve selects KAMO as exclusive power supplier


N


ortheast Oklahoma Electric Coopera ve (NEOEC) will embark on a new alliance with a familiar face in 2017. NEOEC has agreed to make KAMO Electric Coopera ve, Inc. (KAMO Power), its exclusive power provider once the current NEOEC contract with Grand River Dam Authority has expired.


KAMO Power is a genera on & transmission coopera ve headquartered in Vinita, Oklahoma. Formed in 1941, KAMO Power is owned by—and supplies power resources to—17 member distribu on coopera ves in both northeast Oklahoma and southwest Missouri. KAMO Power is one of six genera on & transmission u li es that own Associated Electric Coopera ve, Inc. (AECI). AECI, in turn, supplies electric capacity and energy resources for the six genera on & transmission en  es.


Although NEOEC has been a member of the KAMO family since 1951, the coopera ve has previously purchased only a small percentage of its required annual power from KAMO. The new agreement, which will go into eff ect June 1, 2017, will allow KAMO to serve 100% of the NEOEC load from a total of 34 delivery points, including two delivery points already served by KAMO.


Due to prior contractual obliga ons, NEOEC has been unable to explore more compe  ve wholesale rates for its membership un l now.


As part of the transi on, KAMO has agreed to purchase 21 NEOEC substa ons and approximately 100 miles of coopera ve-held 69kV

transmission lines. This will remove from NEOEC the burden of having to test, maintain and replace any components, including transformers in the substa ons, and perform maintenance on these transmission lines.


The addi on of the NEOEC load, with its more than 38,000 ac ve meters, will add approximately 150MW to KAMO’s system during peak demand.


All contractual details are complete between NEOEC and KAMO,” remarked J. Chris Cariker, KAMO CEO. “KAMO will immediately begin making prepara ons to be in posi on to serve this added load next June 1.”


“We are excited to (embark) on this new rela onship with KAMO,” explained NEOEC General Manager Anthony Due. “KAMO has been our low-cost power provider for the last fi ve years and has a strong, local presence. They currently serve eight of our neighboring electric coopera ves here in Oklahoma and have been forging a rela onship with our organiza on for the past 65 years.”


Due further explained that KAMO emphasizes the power of doing business locally with a system of governance that places a big emphasis on elected board members from the coopera ves like NEOEC, to serve on its board of trustees.


Added Due: “Having KAMO linemen, substa on technicians and engineers all right here in Vinita will only strengthen our system by providing reliable service and improved response  mes during outage events.”


KAMO Power annual sales to member coopera ves exceeds 6.7 million megawa -hours and impacts 313,455 member-owners. Revenues from these sales are used to cover KAMO’s expenses. KAMO Power and its members are not-for-profi t organiza ons. Any margins are credited back to member-owners and returned as funds are available. KAMO rates are the same for each of the coopera ves it serves.


The partnership between KAMO Power, AECI and fi ve other genera on & transmission members of AECI creates a strong network of high voltage genera on & transmission resources, communica ons systems, qualifi ed personnel, planning, eff ec ve system opera ons, maintenance programs, and an economic and reliable power supply throughout Missouri, northeast Oklahoma and southern Iowa for the benefi t of its member distribu on coopera ves and their member- owners.


“Northeast Oklahoma Electric Coopera ve is looking forward to being an even larger part of the KAMO Power family going forward,” said Due. “We feel like this is a decision that adds strength and reliability to our system and will provide many benefi ts that will enhance service quality for our members.” 
