Nebraska Wind Energy Bill Headed To Final Vote

Posted: 23 May, 2013

LINCOLN (AP) - A bill designed to attract large wind-energy farms to Nebraska is headed to a final vote in the Legislature. Lawmakers gave second-round approval Tuesday to the bill, which would extend sales tax exemptions to wind-energy companies. One firm, TradeWind Energy, has expressed interest in developing a wind farm in Dixon County, on the Iowa and South Dakota border. Nebraska ranks as one of the nation's biggest wind-producing states, but 26th in the energy it could produce with equipment currently installed. Sen. Steve Lathrop of Omaha says the bill is designed to keep Nebraska competitive with other high-wind states in the Plains. Some lawmakers questioned whether Nebraskan residents would receive enough of the direct benefits.
