Oct. 2019 Powering our Future:Oct. 2019 Powering our Future: Solar + Natural Gas
In November 2019, OPPD’s Board of Directors approved a plan to add utility-scale solar, with natural gas backup, to its generation portfolio. We will add up to 600 megawatts of utility-scale solar, as well as up to 600 megawatts with replacement gas backup, allowing us to move forward with retiring our oldest, coal-fed units at North Omaha Station and continue to integrate more renewables into the system. Though we’re still in the early planning phases, we’re getting the conversation started about these new power generating facilities now.
