City Extends Agreement With Power District



Bookmark and Share

Once it's finished, the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will use six times as much energy as the Sioux Falls Arena.

To support the load, the city of Sioux Falls extended it's agreement with Heartland Conusmers Power District out of Madison. The company already supplies power to places such as the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center, the Sioux Falls Water Purification Plant and the Sioux Falls Regional Airport.

The city's original agreement expired in 2021 but has been extended to 2036. The events center will also be the first customer to take advantage of what's called the Energy ONE Incentive program that's being offered to Heartland customers that have a demand of one megawatt or larger.

The events center will generate an estimated 4.5 megawatt peak when it opens in the fall of 2014. Therefore, the city won't have to pay demand charges as part of the incentive program for the first few years of operation.

Director Of Public Works Mark Cotter said, "We are building a facility that's going to use a lot of power but we're also taking steps to make it one of the most energy efficient facilities in the country."

When the incentive period runs out, the city will get a rate that's specific to the events center. The contract extension will save the city about $2.5 million over the first five years.
