Energy Management Project No. 3 (EMP3) was officially created in 2012 by a set of agreements between KMEA and 10 member cities: Burlingame, Chapman, Girard, Holton, Horton, Neodesha, Osage City, Seneca, Sterling and Wamego.

The EMP3 Project began delivering electricity to the first participating city in May, 2013, with four additional cities receiving power by the end of 2013.  The remaining five cities received power starting in April, 2014. The group has added the member cities of Jetmore and Altamont in 2015, Kiowa in 2016, Arma, Chetopa and Lindsborg in 2018 and the cities of Blue Mound, Moran and LaHarpe in 2019.
