Natural Gas or Fuel Oil

The Hallam peaking plant can burn gas or oil, depending on the cost

A number of Nebraska power plants generate electricity by burning either natural gas or fuel oil, depending on each fuel’s cost. In recent years, these generators relied on natural gas, as its cost was far less than fuel oil. The state’s largest dual-fuel generators, and their generating capacity in megawatts, are:

  • Rokeby (241 MW)
  • Terry Bundy Generating Station (169 MW)
  • Hallam (52 MW)
  • Hebron (52 MW)
  • McCook (51 MW)
  • 8th & J Street (27 MW)
