OPPD is evaluating proposals from renewable energy developers to develop new utility-scale solar generation. Developers submitted proposals with different capacities, locations, and costs. OPPD will model each of the proposals to compare impacts on energy system reliability and our ability to keep rates affordable.


Community Energy - Platteview Solar

OPPD recently signed a contract with Community Energy, Inc. for an 81-megawatt solar array spread across approximately 500 leased acres south of Yutan, Neb., in eastern Saunders County. When complete, this facility will be capable of powering around 14,000 average homes. The facility’s name: Platteview Solar. This is the first solar contract announced as part of Power with Purpose. You can read more at OPPD's news website, The Wire.

Now is the time to take advantage of solar technology, as costs have come down and the technology has improved. Adding solar generation will help OPPD meet the growing energy needs of our service territory and maintain a resilient and reliable system.

OPPD is leading the way we power the future. This is the next evolution in our generation portfolio.
