Shakopee Energy Park
Shakopee Energy Park (SEP) produces electricity from clean-burning natural gas.
The 46-megawatt (MW) facility, located in Shakopee near Canterbury Park, uses fuel-efficient reciprocating engines to generate local, reliable power for Shakopee as well as contributing to the overall power supply for all MMPA member communities.
SEP provides the Agency with peaking power during times of high energy use. The facility provides additional benefits to the Agency, including local interconnection to avoid high voltage transmission costs and increased local reliability. SEP also helps support business development in our member communities.
Like other MMPA facilities, Shakopee Energy Park goes beyond power generation and seeks to provide the Agency and its member community of Shakopee with a long-term energy supply asset for many years to come.
