Table 2: Unit-level details

Unit name Status Fuel(s) Capacity (MW) Technology CHP Start year Retired year
Unit CC1 operating[1] fossil gas - natural gas[2] 47.8[2] combined cycle[2] 1998[2]
Unit CC2 construction[3][4][5] fossil gas - natural gas[6] 150[7][6] combined cycle[8] 2024[3][4]

CHP is an abbreviation for Combined Heat and Power. It is a technology that produces electricity and thermal energy at high efficiencies. Coal units track this information in the Captive Use section when known.
