COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Public Power District says it likely set a generation record to meet customer demand during the subzero weather.

NPPD said in a news release that it generated an estimated 2,256 megawatts of electricity between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday. The old winter record was 2,219 megawatts in December 2009.

NPPD spokeswoman Jeanne Schieffer (SHEE'-fur) says NPPD couldn't be certain of Monday's record figures because all the data had yet to be assembled.

The utility says an estimated 1 million people depend on it for electricity, either as retail customers or as customers of utilities that buy power from NPPD.
