New Projects to Increase Nebraska's Wind Energy Capacity

LINCOLN -- A series of new projects will nearly triple Nebraska's wind energy capacity by the end of 2015.  Right now, Nebraska has the capacity to generate 459 megawatts from wind power.  John Hansen, co-chair of the 6th annual Nebraska Wind Conference, told an audience on yesterday the state will add 750 megawatts over the next 2 years.  When projects are done, Nebraska will join the ranks of neighboring states Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming and Colorado, which have all surpassed the 1,000-megawatt mark.
