Half of OPPD's (Omaha) energy will come from renewable sources by 2020, CEO says

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Cole Epley

LINCOLN — Omaha Public Power District President and Chief Executive Tim Burke said half the energy the utility sells to retail customers will come from renewable sources by the end of 2020.

Burke said in remarks over lunch at the 10th annual Nebraska Wind and Solar Conference on Monday that the utility is working on a request for proposals for up to 300 megawatts more of wind energy.

Once that project is online, more than 50 percent of OPPD’s retail sales will come from renewable energy sources.

For comparison, less than 20 percent of OPPD’s retail sales in 2016 came from such sources, which include wind turbines, natural gas extracted from the Douglas County landfill and hydropower from dams in the western U.S.
