Sheldon Station Goes Hydrogen
Why We Are Excited
- One of two boilers at Sheldon Station near Hallam, Neb. will be converted to use hydrogen as fuel instead of coal.
- Hydrogen fuel produces nearly zero greenhouse gas emissions.
- The use of hydrogen is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1 million tons per year and increase NPPD’s carbon-free generation to 46% – one of the lowest carbon-free footprints in the region.
- This will be the first utility-scale hydrogen powered generation in Nebraska.
- This private, business-led solution has the potential to support 100 new jobs and hundreds of millions of new capital investment in the state.
- A groundbreaking is expected in 2016 with completion of the conversion expected in 2019.
