Sikeston BMU’s Power Supply Planning Update

The Sikeston Board of Municipal Utilities (SBMU) announced in June 2023 that it is initiating a review of the community’s future energy needs and the best way to meet those needs. We will be updating this news article as we receive new information and details from our study progress.  The power supply process (PSP) Sikeston BMU is using will help the utility understand options and which option is best able to provide rate stability, energy reliability, the ability to serve current and future electrical loads, the use of technology options for customer benefit, and maintaining SBMU’s ability to provide future benefits for the community through the supply of power. 

The Power Supply Planning (PSP) kicked off with an open house event on June 14, 2023, where the public came to learn more about the challenges and opportunities SBMU is contending with as it evaluates the best ways to meet the community’s energy needs going forward. At the open house information regarding the opportunities and challenges the utility is confronting, and the power planning process the utility is using to evaluate theses issues, was presented and the public was able to ask questions.
