Welcome to the Kansas Power Pool!
On May 1, 2005, Kansas Power Pool (KPP) became the first municipal power pool in the state of Kansas by delivering power to four of the founding cities of the organization. As a truly member driven organization, KPP has dramatically increased in size and membership since the original group of six cities formed the agency in 2005. KPP’s mission continues to focus on providing the most effective and efficient wholesale electric service to our members.

Thanks for your interest in the Kansas Power Pool. By working together, the Public Power members of the Kansas Power Pool will continue to bring the most reliable and economical energy services to all member owners.

Cybersecurity has dominated the news lately — alleged Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election, WikiLeaks, massive retail data breaches… the list goes on.
Public power and all electric utilities take very seriously their responsibility to maintain a strong electric grid. As the grid evolves, unfortunately, so do threats to its integrity. The threat of cyber attacks is relatively new compared to long-known physical threats, but an attack with operational consequences could occur and cause disruptions in the flow of power if malicious actors were able to hack the systems that control and connect to our nation’s electricity infrastructure at any level.
Here are five things you probably didn’t know about cybersecurity and the electricity industry:
Public power believes the current regulations and standards established by Congress in 2005 provide a solid foundation for strengthening the industry’s security posture. These standards are dynamic as they evolve with input from subject matter experts from across industry and government.
The electricity industry realizes that it cannot possibly protect all assets from all threats at all times. Instead, the goal must be to manage risk, prioritize facilities and equipment, and develop contingency plans. Close coordination among industry and government partners at all levels is essential to deter attacks and prepare for emergency situations — the Association will continue to invest considerable resources into this effort.
