The Fort Calhoun Community Solar facility came online at the end of 2019, adding 5MWac of solar to the renewable portfolio. OPPD’s utility-scale solar project, Power with Purpose, will continue to add solar to our renewable portfolio over the next several years.
OPPD conducts extensive research and planning to create its energy portfolio. Many considerations weigh into the overall strategy behind the current generation mix and the future state. As new technologies become available and regulations evolve, the energy portfolio so too will change.
