Platte River's current energy production
Platte River Power Authority is committed to working toward achieving a 100% noncarbon energy mix by 2030 while maintaining delivery of reliable, environmentally responsible and financially sustainable energy and services to its owner communities.
Platte River began using battery storage technology in late 2020 but a significant percentage of the noncarbon energy produced is dependent upon available wind and sunshine. Noncarbon energy output therefore varies from day to day and hour to hour.
