The cities of Ashland, Beloit, Hoisington, Lincoln Center, Osborne, Pratt, Russell, Sharon Springs, Stockton, and Washington saw the potential for achieving substantial benefits for their municipal electric customers through the following actions: coordinating an interconnected electric system under a central dispatching center; sharing capacity and exchanging electricity; and by jointly planning new electric power supplies.

By enacting Energy Management Project No. 2 (EMP 2), these cities built a project governing structure, established common reliability and metering standards, and set rules for sharing and exchanging power resources and determining project power supply pricing. The project began delivering electricity on November 1, 2007. In 2014 the project added the member cities of Meade and Garden City and in 2018 added the member cities of Mankato and Cimarron.
