City of Harrisonville receives MoPEP grant for electric systems upgrade

Harrisonville City officials accept a grant from M0PEP.

Harrisonville City officials took another step towards improving the city’s electric distribution system on Monday night as they accepted an $116,550 grant from the Missouri Public Energy Pool (MoPEP).

The grant is a part of the MoPEP Power Infrastructure Modernization Grant Program and is being used toward the cost of upgrading the city’s electric system, including new transmission lines for an area near Precision Drive, and the rebuilding of a line for Forest Street.

“Harrisonville’s upgrades will help improve the system’s reliability,” President and General Manager of the Missouri Public Utility Alliance Duncan Kincheloe said. “Projects like Harrisonville’s that enhance local infrastructure also help make the entire MoPEP partnership more reliable and efficient.”

Mayor Brian Hasek, City Administrator Happy Welch and Public Works Director Eric Patterson accepted the award on behalf of the City.

The grant is the second that the city has received from the MoPEP program. A previous grant was made in 2015 for more than $91,000, and was used for part of Harrisonville’s cost to install new fiber optics for the city’s electrical SCADA system.

The MoPEP Power Infrastructure Modernization Grant Program assists MoPEP municipal utilities to invest in long term capital assets of their local electric systems, to improve reliability and efficiency of electric infrastructure for systems supplied through MoPEP. Funds requested under the program must be used for improving assets and operations used in the electric utility.
