Power Plant Superintendent

The City of Pratt’s Electrical Generation Department is responsible for the electrical power requirements for the City of Pratt and customers in our electrical distribution area located within Pratt County. These power requirements are provided from city owned and operated electrical generation units and from a 115 kilovolt interconnection with Sunflower Electric Cooperative.  The Cities total generation capacity is 34.1 megawatts provided by a 17.5 megawatt steam plant that contains two generators; a 12.5 megawatt unit and a 5 megawatt unit and a 15.6 megawatt internal combustion plant that houses two 7 megawatt duel fuel units, one of which is Black start for emergency purposes. In addition the city has a 1 megawatt diesel unit that is a black start unit for emergency power plant house pumps and auxiliaries needed to start steam units and duel fuel units when needed. The cities 115 KV interconnect with the Sunflower Electric Cooperative are governed by a KCC approved Local Interconnection Agreement that controls the standards which the cities electrical systems must operate within. Restraints within the electrical transmission systems within Kansas make it necessary for the city to generate a portion of its power requirements when the capacity of the distribution systems within the area is exceeded. The cities ability to generate its own power is also necessary and a very valuable asset when the city is disconnected from the electrical grid due to emergency situations or maintenance requirements.

The production department has 12 Employees. All employees are expected to complete the training program. The employees of the power plant have diverse responsibilities which include electrical functions, maintenance and overhaul of all units, monitoring energy markets, operation of the generation units, and comply with the all the requirements of the interconnect agreements.
