Even with high temperatures that undoubtedly had air conditioners around Pella working over time, the city’s electric system has been able to handle the load with no problem.

Pella Electrical Services Director Larry Peterson says over the past week, operations at the power plant generated between approximately nine megawatts at a minimum up to 16 megawatts when conditions warranted.

He says at full capacity, the plant can generate about 38 megawatts.
