Nebraska encourages more wind and solar development

Those attending the Nebraska Wind and Solar Conference and Exhibition this week were told the state has much more potential to increase its production of wind-powered electricity.

“There’s a lot of upside potential in our state because we have tremendous wind and solar resources,” John Hansen, president of the Nebraska Farmers Union, told attendees at the 2019 Nebraska Wind & Solar Conference and Exhibition.

Hundreds of business executives, community leaders, landowners and others attended the two-day event  in Lincoln, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.
