Electric Generation

CWLP's generating capacity is provided by four coal-fired steam turbine generators (with a total nameplate rating of 578 megawatts [MW]), one dual-fuel natural gas- and oil-fired combustion turbine (with a total nameplate rating of 115 MW), and two oil-fired combustion turbines (with a total nameplate rating of 31 MW). Based on nameplate ratings, CWLP's total summer maximum net generating capability is 724 MW.

The start-up of the 200-MW Dallman 4 generating station in Summer 2009 allowed CWLP to stop using the last two operating 1960s-vintage generating units at Lakeside Power Station, which was originally built in 1935 on the shore of the then newly constructed Lake Springfield.

In addition to the power self-generated by CWLP, the utility contracts for wind power from NextEra Energy Resources.
