In 2016 Springville Whitehead Power Plant bought two Caterpillar 3520Hs. These were retrofitted into the space left by the EMDs and took advantage of the existing plant infrastructure while meeting the goals of improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
Springville City is a member of the UAMPS organization,
During the early years, most of the energy required within the city was generated through the hydroelectric facilities that operated on the water sources in the Hobble Creek and Spring Creek Canyons. Since those days, the City has entered into numerous contracts, agreements, bought resources and constructed additional generation. The City’s increased load requirements naturally required additional transmission, substation, and distribution infrastructure to provide for the power needs of the city residents, businesses, municipal facilities and other power customers
