In August of 2019, the LPEA board passed Resolution 2019-10, requesting that LPEA employees pursue multiple contract options with Tri-State Generation & Transmission, which currently supplies LPEA with 95% of the electricity we deliver to our members. LPEA's current contract with Tri-State runs through 2050.

These options included:

  • a full exit;
  • a partial exit;
  • amendments to our current contract to allow more flexibility to better meet the needs of our membership.

Since then, LPEA has been actively exploring all three of those avenues. Learn more below.
