Public Release: Planning For Future, OPPD Management Recommends Ceasing Operations At Fort Calhoun Station


Continued operation of Fort Calhoun Station (FCS) is not in the long-term financial best interests of OPPD or its customer-owners. That’s what President and CEO Tim Burke told the board of directors at today’s monthly meeting, making a recommendation from senior management that the utility will cease the generation of electricity at FCS by the end of 2016 and begin decommissioning. The recommendation came after a thorough review of OPPD’s resource planning efforts. The board will review the recommendation and is anticipated to vote on it at the June 16 board meeting. If the recommendation is approved, OPPD proposes no general rate increases through 2021.
