Cooper Nuclear Station (CNS) operates as the largest single-unit
electrical generator in the state, generating 810 megawatts of
electricity. This would be enough power to supply more than
310,000 residential customers during the highest summer usage
In late November 2010, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission renewed
the plant’s license through January 18, 2034, which is an additional
20 years beyond its initial 40-year license. NPPD has a service
agreement with Entergy Nuclear Nebraska through 2029.
CNS provides Nebraskans with safe, clean & reliable electricity.
