Gov. Dave Heineman, R-Neb., has signed L.B.1048 into law. The bill is designed to encourage the development, ownership and operation of renewable energy facilities for the export of wind energy from Nebraska.
‘This legislation, combined with previous wind energy efforts, will allow Nebraska to achieve its wind energy potential,’ says Heineman. ‘Wind energy development will foster growth of the new clean energy economy, and provide meaningful employment and educational opportunities for Nebraskans.’
L.B.1048 preserves the benefits Nebraskans receive as a result of the state's public power system by allowing the Nebraska Power Review Board to approve wind energy operations designed to export energy.
