NPPD To Cease Burning Coal at Sheldon Coal Plant Unit 2 Outside Lincoln

WASHINGTON - Today, Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) announced it would cease burning coal at Unit 2 of its Sheldon Station coal-fired power plant in Hallam. NPPD will now burn a new hydrogen fuel at Unit 2 of the coal plant while continuing to burn coal in Unit 1. Built in 1958, Sheldon Station sits just south of Lincoln near the town of Hallam. The plant is owned and operated by NPPD and has contributed to air and water quality issues for the surrounding community.
