NEW KNOXVILLE — The New Knoxville Village Councilors met Tuesday for their monthly meeting to approve a contract with American Municipal Power (AMP) to purchase 300 kilowatts in the AFEC project and declared it an emergency.
Village Administrator Rex Katterheinrich said the 300 kilowatt purchase was on the conservative side because the recommendation from AMP was for 900 intermediate kilowatts.
“We felt the best way to go was to err on the conservative side because it’s intermediate power,” Katterheinrich said.
