Energy Market Scheduling

As their designated agent, CMPAS schedules member’s portfolios in the day ahead and real-time energy markets of the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) and Southwest Power Pool (SPP) markets every day, searching for low-cost, reliable power solutions.

Wholesale power accounts for nearly 60 percent of the retail price of electricity delivered by CMMPA members. If we can shave $1-2 off the price of each unit of power, that is meaningful savings that will be reflected in the bills our public power members send their customers.

When CMPAS succeeds, our members succeed. We design and maintain a generation portfolio that mitigates risks and manages around turbulence in the market. Last year, we procured about 400,000 megawatt-hours (mWh) of wholesale power, valued at about $22 million, for our members.
