Generating Units in Nebraska

The units generating electricity are listed in the table below, each with unit ID, capacity, prime mover, energy source, year of commercial operation, status, number of wind turbines if applicable, and the generation sector. The key to the abbreviations is below the table.

While individual installations are not reported in available net metering reports for Nebraska, the assumption was made that school wind projects and small–scale projects are in the net metering reports. So megawatts from the net metering reports are included in the totals below while megawatts from the individual school wind projects and known small–scale projects are not included in the totals to avoid possible double–counting.

See the Units and Capacity by Energy Source and Year of Initial Operation report and the Units and Capacity by Energy Source report for additional information.

A Note About Nameplate Capacity

Summer capacity and winter capacity is sometimes greater than nameplate capacity. The nameplate gives the capacity rating of the generator when it operates at certain temperatures, pressures, and power factors. With some modifications and with some margins that are built into generators, it is possible to exceed its nameplate. It is not uncommon for a generator to exceed its nameplate. The nameplate is usually not replaced and, in this case, the summer and winter capacity is often much higher than the nameplate value. Normally, summer and winter capacity is expected to be below nameplate capacity and in most cases they are.

FC = Fuel cell

GT = Combustion (gas) turbine – simple cycle (includes jet engine design)

HY = Hydraulic turbine (includes turbines associated with delivery of water by pipeline)

IC = Internal combustion engine (diesel, piston, reciprocating)

OT = Other

PS = Hydraulic turbine – reversible (pumped storage)

PV = Photovoltaic

ST = Steam turbine, including nuclear, geothermal, and solar steam (does not include combined cycle)

WT = Wind turbine

Energy Source: The first word or abbreviation is the primary energy source. The second word or abbreviation is the alternate energy source.

AB = Agricultural crop byproducts/straw/energy crops

OBL = Other biomass liquids (ethanol, fish oil, liquid acetonitrile waste, medical waste, tall oil, waste alcohol, and other biomass not specified)

OBS = Other biomass solids (animal manure and waste, solid byproducts, and other solid biomass not specified)

OG = Other gas (butane, coal processes, coke–oven, refinery, and other processes)

OTH = Other (batteries, chemicals, coke breeze, hydrogen, pitch, sulfur, tar coal, and miscellaneous technologies)

PC = Petroleum coke

PG = Gaseous propane

PUR = Purchased steam
