Our speakers will be Tricia McKnight, OPPD Product Specialist, and Heather Siebken, Director of Product Development & Marketing. They will present an overview of OPPD’s community solar program and how customer-owners will be able to participate. A Q&A will follow their presentation.

Some Background Information:

At the OPPD Board of Director’s June 7, 2018 meeting, the board received an update on the project, including size and location. OPPD awarded a 20-year power purchase agreement to a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, to build a 5-megawatt solar facility in Fort Calhoun. The OPPD facility will be built east of Fort Calhoun in Washington County, covering approximately 35 acres. Per contract terms, the facility will go into operation by June 30, 2019.
