OPPD Listens... and needs your help! In an effort to continue providing affordable, reliable, and environmentally sensitive energy services to all of our customers, we are seeking input regarding what our power generation options are today and for the future. We’re looking for you to weigh in on decisions that may affect your future electric bill and how your power is generated.
Public input on future generation options will be gathered in a three-phased approach:
- Phase I: Conduct open houses across the district to gather information from customers about generation options and factors considered when selecting portfolios.
- Phase II: Conduct focus groups and surveys with randomly selected participants who represent OPPD’s customer base and to discuss factors about selected generation options and portfolios.
- Phase III: Conduct open houses to present different portfolios to the public.
