Grand Opening of SMP's Regional Dispatch Center
We are excited to announce the completion of the new Sho-Me Power Regional Dispatch Center. Our dispatch crews made the move in late May to begin training, with the facility becoming fully operational in June. The new RDC not only allows Sho-Me to meet compliance requirements, but also helps Sho-Me and our members accomplish our timeless goals of providing safe, reliable, low cost power.
