New Power Nebraska shines a light on the benefits that wind energy generation brings to Nebraska’s communities and rural places – for clean power, farm income, and new jobs.
Congressman Jeff Fortenberry
Using a natural resource – that we have in abundance in Nebraska – to cleanly create energy promotes American energy independence, generates new income opportunities for farmers, and leads us to a new energy future.
David L. Bracht, Former Director, Nebraska Energy Office
We as a state continue to see how wind can support our local economies. Having an additional natural resource that we can use. develop, and export for value is a great opportunity.
Chris Beutler, Former Mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska
Wind energy is a significant component of our community’s energy diversification efforts. As we continue to grow as a city, we will increasingly draw upon clean energy sources to accommodate energy needs. As a clean, homegrown resource, wind will play a vital role in powering our future.
