10 Cooper Nuclear Station (CNS) Options Study - Risk Analysis Quantitatively analyze future possible operating scenarios for our Cooper Nuclear Station Utilized consultants from Strategic Decisions Group (SDG), an industry recognized expert in analytical decision methodologies Utilized Stochastic modeling, which includes assigning a probability distribution for selected key inputs and provides a probability distribution for your outputs – Inputs – values assigned for all major uncertainties at the 10 th, 50 th, and 90 th percentile points  10 th percentile one in ten the value will be lower  90 th percentile one in ten the value will be higher 10 Copyright © 2009 Nebraska Public Power District. All rights reserved.

11 CNS Options Study – Risk Analysis The bar charts on the following page identify an Expected Value (EV) for each of the future operating scenarios – The EV is the probability-weighted average outcome of each option, given the many combinations where each data input is taken at the 10 th, 50 th, and 90 th percentile points The width of the bar illustrates the “range of uncertainty” or risk associated with Operating Scenario – A narrower or smaller bar width around the Expected Value indicates less risk or a more certain outcome when comparing to other scenarios 11 Copyright © 2009 Nebraska Public Power District.
