Energy Sources

Fifty-seven of our 60 members receive an allocation of hydropower from the dams on the Missouri River, and they purchase, on average, about 40 percent of their energy needs from the federal government’s Western Area Power Administration (WAPA). MRES meets their remaining power supply needs with our diverse and reliable energy sources below.  

In addition to energy generation, MRES also provides members with transmission services.
