A diverse generation fleet

LCRA can provide reliable and cost-effective electricity because of its diverse generation portfolio, which includes:

LCRA owns a share of the coal-fired Sandy Creek Energy Station in McLennan County. LCRA also generates hydroelectric power at the Highland Lakes dams and purchases wind power from Texas wind projects.

Though once a significant portion of LCRA’s portfolio, hydroelectric generation now is only used as a byproduct of river management or during a power emergency.

LCRA owns or has rights to about 3,300 megawatts of power – enough for LCRA and its wholesale electric customers to provide electricity for about 1 million people.
