Nebraska wind export bill becomes law
New law strikes compromise between public power
benefits and utilizing more of the state’s wind potential
     Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman
in April signed a bill into law allow-
ing private developers to build wind
farms in Nebraska to export wind-
generated electricity to other states.
The Nebraska Legislature unani-
mously passed LB1048 (48-0) before
it went to the Governor’s desk.
     The bill, introduced by Sen.
Chris Langemeier of Schuyler, Neb.,
is a successful compromise between
upholding the benefits of public
power (low rates and local control)
and tapping into more of the state’s
wind generating potential.
     Under the law, private develop-
ers have the opportunity to develop,
own and operate renewable energy
facilities to export the majority of the
energy output to other states. Projects
developed will be subject to review                                                                                  A technical group consisting of
