Lincoln Combustion Turbine Station

The Lincoln Combustion Turbine Station is a 1,200-megawatt natural gas-fired generating facility located in Lincoln County, N.C.

Lincoln operates as a simple-cycle peaking facility, generating electricity quickly during periods when customers’ electricity usage is greatest—typically hot summer afternoons and cold winter mornings.

The Lincoln facility consists of 16 natural gas-fired combustion turbines. Natural gas is the primary fuel for the plant, with fuel oil as a secondary fuel source.

In 1857, General Stonewall Jackson married at the spot where the Lincoln facility now stands.
