Sheldon Station is an aging coal-fired power plant constructed in 1958 near Hallam, Nebr. Sheldon Station is the biggest polluter in Lancaster County and changing environmental regulations make continuing operations at Sheldon Station uneconomical. Sheldon Station's 80 dedicated employees deserve a transition plan for job creation and economic growth after the plant is retired.
Nebraskans overwhelmingly support developing wind energy in our state and communities reap the benefits of wind development. It's time to tell our public power leaders that Nebraska wins when we develop clean, renewable energy.
It's time to shut down this old, inefficient coal plant and invest in wind. To learn more, visit www.cfra.org/clearsky.
