Formed in 2000, this joint venture project owns three gas turbine peaking generation units and 34 diesel units. The project has a subscribed capacity of 134.096 megawatts (MW). The 34 diesel units were upgraded in 2015 with diesel oxidation catalysts. AMP can operate the diesel units remotely from its Energy Control Center for peak shaving.
AMP manages the project on behalf of 36 participating member communities: Amherst, Arcanum, Bowling Green, Bradner, Brewster, Custar, Cuyahoga Falls, Dover, Edgerton, Elmore, Galion, Genoa, Grafton, Hamilton, Haskins, Jackson Center, Lodi, Lucas, Milan, Monroeville, Montpelier, Napoleon, Niles, Oak Harbor, Oberlin, Painesville, Pemberville, Pioneer, Seville, Shelby, South Vienna, St. Marys, Versailles, Wadsworth, Woodville and Yellow Springs.
Formed in 1993, OMEGA JV5 is a cooperative project composed of 42 AMP member communities. In addition to the 42-megawatt (MW) Belleville Hydroelectric Plant (which began commercial operation in 1999), the joint venture also consists of approximately 26.5 miles of 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission facilities. In 2018, 15 1.8-MW diesel reciprocating generation units (previously owned by the project and restricted to emergency use only since 2016) were sold, as approved by the participants. AMP developed and operates the projects on behalf of OMEGA JV5 participants.
