Dixon County Wind Farm Closer To Development

Posted: 28 December, 2012

COLUMBUS (AP) - A wind energy development company says it has almost everything lined up to build a 200-megawatt wind farm in northeast Nebraska. All it needs now are buyers of the electricity it would generate. TradeWind Energy LLC’s project in Dixon County would generate enough electricity to power about 60,000 homes. But David Rich, of Nebraska Public Power District, says the lack of state tax incentives allows other projects in other states to dominate the market for exported power. He says the Nebraska Legislature in 2010 approved a bill allows private investment in wind projects for export, but proposals for incentives have not advanced.
