Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) Records
The Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) Records consists of the minutes of UAMPS meetings from 1980 to the present. These minutes detail energy projects, trainings, and other important topics for UAMPS.
Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) started in 1980 as a political subdivision of the state of Utah. Established under the Interlocal Cooperative Act to plan, finance, and operate electric power projects, UAMPS provides wholesale electric energy, energy transmission, and other energy services to community-owned power systems on a non-profit basis. In 1992, UAMPS amended their organizational agreements to allow other states to become members. UAMPS currently operates 16 projects and includes 48 members from Utah, California, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Several of these projects involve UAMPS’s Carbon Free Power Project, which aims to increase the use of wind, solar, and even nuclear power in the Intermountain West, with plans in motion to complete the first small modular reactor power plant in the United States by the end of the decade.
