Dear Fellow Nebraskans:
Wind energy means so much more to Nebraska than just increasing our energy independence. For much of rural Nebraska, it means more jobs, economic development, landowner and community involvement, and more opportunity to grow our cities and towns. Harnessing this state resource diversifies the state’s energy generation portfolio with a renewable and clean source.
