Energy Pool: Southwind Energy Group
“SEG” (Sabetha, Iola, Chanute, Fredonia, Centralia, Arcadia, Axtell) Kansas
In 2012 Chanute decided to choose a different energy provider. They teamed up with six other cities and chose Evergy Energy Partners as their market representative for their shared energy resources. These combined cities are known as the Southwind Energy Group “SEG”.
Evergy Energy Partners is the market interface from front to back office on behalf of SEG. Daily requirements for SEG include market submissions for demand and resources, Day-Ahead market commitments and Real-Time market communications. Westar provides settlement services and RTO compliance monitoring.
Evergy Energy Partners and SEG meet at least once a month for operational review and strategy development. Evergy Energy Partners also provides renewable energy to SEG’s already existing power supply.
