The City of Augusta's electric system was established in 1913.  Power plant I was built in 1929 and expanded through the years with the addition of generators in 1939, 1949, 1951, 1956, and 1964 for a total capacity of 9,731 kilowatts.  In 1968, the City build a new plant and installed two new 4,000 kilowatt generators.  In 1981, the City added a new 6,000 kilowatt generator.  In 2004, a 6,620 kilowatt generator was added, giving the City a combined total of 30,351 kilowatts of generation capacity.

The city is interconnected with the transmission power grid by a 69,000 volt line, stepping it down to a distribution voltage of 12,470 volts.  The capacity of the city's interconnecting transmission tie is 28,000 kilowatts.

The city has five lineman and eight power plant employees to operate its generation and distribution facilities.  The electric department services 510 commercial and nearly 3,800 residential customers.

The City of Augusta is a founding member of the Kansas Power Pool.  The power pool was formed in 2005 by a group of Kansas municipalities in order to utilize all of the member cities' resources, including internal generation and purchased power contracts.  This was done to help hold down member cities' power costs, thus reducing the cost to our customers.  The City of Augusta currently purchases wholesale power from the Kansas Power Pool.
