1Municipal Solid Waste net generation is allocated according to the biogenic and non-biogenic components of the fuel; however, all Municipal Solid Waste summer capacity is classified as Renewable.
* = Absolute percentage less than 0.05.
- = No data reported.
Notes: Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
Other: Blast furnace gas, propane gas, other manufactured and waste gases derived from fossil fuels, non-biogenic municipal solid waste, batteries, chemicals, hydrogen, pitch, purchased steam, sulfur, tire-derived fuel, and miscellaneous technologies.
Other Renewable: Wood, black liquor, other wood waste, biogenic municipal solid waste, landfill gas, sludge waste, agriculture byproducts, other biomass, geothermal, solar thermal, photovoltaic energy, and wind.

Operator: Union Electric Company

Location and Service Territory: The Callaway Power Plant is located on 7,200 acres of land in Callaway County, 25 miles northeast of Jefferson City, Missouri.

Construction Cost: $5.919 billion (2007 USD)2

Staffing: Approximately 1,000 employees

Reactor Descriptions: The Callaway facility uses a Westinghouse four-loop pressurized reactor.

Cooling System: The Callaway facility is cooled by a 553 feet tall natural draft cooling tower that draws water from the Missouri River.
