Renewable energy from NPPD to power Monolith expansion

By Matt Olberding, Lincoln Journal Star

Monolith Materials and Nebraska Public Power District (a member of Bio Nebraska) have signed what is likely the largest renewable energy agreement in Nebraska history.

Monolith announced Monday that it has signed a letter of intent with NPPD for the utility to procure enough renewable energy resources to annually generate 2 million megawatt-hours.

That’s enough power to provide Monolith with 100% renewable energy for the proposed $1 billion expansion of its Olive Creek facility near Hallam.
