NPPD And Lincoln Electric System Are Considering Ending Agreement With NPPD’s Sheldon Station

HALLAM- The boards of directors for both the Nebraska Public Power District and the Lincoln Electric System are considering ending an agreement for electricity produced at NPPD’s Sheldon Station, a 225-megawatt facility outside of Hallam.

The boards are expected to vote on a termination and release agreement at their meetings. If approved, the Lincoln utility will pay NPPD $10.5 million to terminate its energy supply agreement at the end of 2017.

NPPD plans to purchase the hydrogen which is produced during Monolith’s production of carbon black and use it, instead of coal, to generate electricity.
