The Indiana Municipal Power Agency has added the town of Troy as its 60th member community. The Perry County town says its current electric contract is set to expire early next year, which led to the decision to join the IMPA.
The IMPA says, as a result of the deal, Troy Utilities Superintendent Bernard "Pudder" Linne will serve as the town’s representative on the IMPA Board of Commissioners.
"Through the Agency, we will receive 100 percent of our power requirements, ensuring the electrical needs of our customers will continue to be met in a reliable and economic fashion," said Linne. "Additionally, IMPA provides a variety of other services, such as engineering, operations, marketing, economic development and government relations assistance, which will benefit our utility and community in numerous ways."
Troy joins 58 other cities and towns in Indiana and one in Ohio that receive electric services from the IMPA. More than 330,000 homes in Indiana are served by the nonprofit wholesale power provider.
