Electric Production

RMU owns and operates three generating stations, totaling 22Mw of generating capacity. All three generating stations are supplied by natural gas, a cleaner burning fuel, just one of RMU's commitments to our citizens and customers to provide environmentally sound emissions. Our 9th Street station has been in operation since 1955, which houses 8 fully operational units. Our second station located on Caron Road houses two units, fully operational at 3Mw. The last of our stations (pictured to the right) was put in service into 2000 and operates to meet summer peak needs at 4.5Mw.
