On a blustery day like Thursday this is easy to believe: a new report says wind power has the potential to boost Nebraska's economy, but the state is still trailing its neighbors in tapping the resource. A report from lawmakers and environmental advocates ranks Nebraska as the fourth-best wind-resource state in the nation. Nebraska is 25th for installed wind capacity. That's lower than Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and Kansas. Skip Laitner, an Arizona-based energy economist, says expanding wind energy could save Nebraska consumers a combined $3.8 billion over the next two decades and shifting from coal power to wind could also lower the nation's health care costs.
