Who We Are
The Arkansas River Power Authority (ARPA) supplies reliable wholesale electric power to the communities of Holly, La Junta, Lamar, Las Animas, Springfield and Trinidad. Unlike larger, investor-owned utilities, ARPA was formed and is owned by the communities it serves.
To promote the long-term economic well being of our municipal members and their consumers by providing a dependable and competitively priced supply of wholesale electric power in an environmentally sound manner.
ARPA is headquartered in Lamar. Our principal electric generation facility is the Lamar Repowering Project. We own smaller electric generation facilities in Trinidad and Holly, and wind turbines in Prowers and Baca Counties.
