"Providing Hometown Reliability"
Units 7 and 8 are located at the Marshall Water Treatment Plant, and Unit 9 is located at the Marshall Wastewater Treatment Plant. All three are 1 MW diesel engine generators, installed in 1988/89. They burn No. 2 oil. They were installed to provide extra generating capacity and for emergency power at the Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants. Other than testing and checkout, we seldom use these units. Startup only requires about 15 minutes. They run to meet our electric needs maybe once every two years.
