Utilities

Another economic tool is our utilities. Breese has its own Electric Power plant that can provide full energy needs in the case of emergencies. We have 6 engines that can provide 14.5 meg of power in peak periods. We rarely have power outages that last for over 30 minutes. Our water plant can provide up to 2 million gallons/day. Right now we are producing 1 million gallons/day during peak periods. Breese also has an award winning waste treatment plant. The quality of water leaving our sewage plant is better than when we bring water into our water treatment plant.
