    What has been the average monthly capacity factor for the "community solar" installation near Fort Calhoun?

    Vita Brevis asked 4 months ago

    Hi Vita, 

    Thank you for reaching out to OPPD. We have forwarded your comments to our alternative energy department for their input and will follow-up with you on a response within 3 business days. 

    Thanks again for your comment. 

    Hello Vita, 

    We have a solar capacity monitoring tool on our website, OPPD.com Here's the link for your review:  https://pubdisplay.alsoenergy.com/kiosk/18014398509527082?dashkey=2a5669734965576e4a43513d3d&tag=4246267 

    The Community Solar has the ability to produce a maximum generating capacity of 5MW. 

    I hope our tool helps with your question. 

    Best, 

    OPPD Engagement Team

    Light pollution has become a problem in large cities. But Blair has its Cargill campus that is way over lit. Something needs to be done about it. And as Omaha keeps growing this issue needs to be addressed. Is OPPD involved with reducing light pollution? If not, why?

    I am originally from Omaha and have always loved walking and visiting the OPPD arboretum and actually had professional photos taken there in the past. Last week I was traveling through Omaha on my way back to Pennsylvania and I made a stop to visit the wonderful park again since it has been a few years since I was there last. I noticed a couple things that I would like to bring to your attention. There were a few trees dying that had tags on them that I am assuming meant that they are being removed. One of the trees is a dedication tree that is at the parking lot/entrance....I am hoping that this one is being replaced and not just removed. Also as I was walking around I noticed that there was no plaque/tree honoring David Walsh whom I understand had a strong influence on the implementation and maintenance of the arboretum. I feel that this park is still a beautiful place with wonderful information for the public and I would hate to see it deteriorate. Thank you!! Chrissy - chjean@aol.com

    Chrissy,


    Thank you for your comments. We appreciate you taking time to tell us what you think. Your opinion matters!


    We at OPPD are glad you had the opportunity to stop and visit the OPPD Arboretum during your travels.  OPPD is proud of this facility and has undertaken some new strategies in maintaining it. There are a number of trees which are slated for removal as they have died. We have also sprayed approximately 15 evergreen trees for bagworm just a few weeks ago. These trees were marked with a red ribbon for the contractor to identify which specific trees were to be treated.  One of the trees which was treated was one which you had to referred to.  This tree was planted to honor Jerry Hakenholz upon his retirement for the foresight he had in implementing and developing this Arboretum as a resource for OPPD to use in educating the public. While this tree is looking a little thin in the crown, we are not planning on removing it at this time. We believe that it may recover and grow. If it should die we would certainly replace this tree with the same type of tree.


    In your inquiry you had also referred to David Walsh as well.  David, who retired a few years ago, was a valued employee for many years with OPPD. One of his responsibilities was the daily maintenance of the Arboretum. His vision for, and devotion to the Arboretum did contribute to its success and helped to make it the treasure to the community that it is today. At this time there are no plans to place a placard adjacent to any trees for David’s contributions as an employee of OPPD.


    We thank you for your interest in the Arboretum and hope that you will stop by again the next time you are in Omaha.  If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us again.

    RE: Streetlight Outage reporting map in OPPD Connect I have attempted to report this before. The streetlight outage reporting map always opens in a location just northwest of Topeka KS, well outside of OPPD's service area. I have no other mapping apps that behave this way. Also, there is no way (user interface mechanism) to relocate the map to my present position, as most other map related apps provide. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance in finding a remedy for this issue.
