Public Power

The Village of Haskins is a PUBLIC POWER COMMUNITY!
We are a member community of AMP-OHIO. 


American Municipal Power-Ohio (AMP-Ohio) is a nonprofit association representing 80-member communities in Ohio, three in Pennsylvania, two in West Virginia and one in Michigan. The organization supplies wholesale power and provides technical and other services to its members. AMP-Ohio owns and operates the Richard H. Gorsuch Generating Station, a 213-megawatt, coal-fired facility in Marietta, Ohio.

In addition, AMP-Ohio manages projects on behalf of the Ohio Municipal Electric Generating Agency (OMEGA) Joint Ventures program. Through this program, AMP-Ohio member communities jointly own generation and transmission projects. As part of the OMEGA JV5 project, AMP-Ohio operates the Belleville Hydroelectric Plant, a 42-megawatt facility located on the Ohio River in Belleville, West Virginia.

Owned and governed by its member communities, the organization has been dedicated to providing member assistance and low-cost power supply to municipal electric systems since its inception in 1971.

AMP-Ohio is closely aligned with two other statewide municipal power organizations. The Ohio Municipal Electric Association (OMEA), which was founded in 1962, is the legislative liaison for Ohio’s municipal electric systems. Founded in 1985, the Ohio Public Power Educational Institute (OPPEI) is a nonprofit foundation that provides educational services for municipal electric employees and informs consumers about the benefits of public power.
