Combustion Turbines

Today, there are three natural gas combustion turbines with diesel fuel back up that are used for emergency and peaking power production. One combustion turbine was installed in 1968 and the other two were installed in 2003. The gas turbines can provide up to 81 MW of combined power and were a valuable asset to Grand Island in 2006 when an ice storm came through. Grand Island's power was restored quickly, while neighboring towns were without power for a week.
