NPPD purchases more wind power


A new Nebraska Public Power District contract is helping to revive the state’s first wind farm. The Springview Wind Facility in central Nebraska — built as a demonstration plant in 1997 and retired in 2007 — is scheduled to operate again in the middle of next year, following a purchase agreement from the NPPD. The Omaha Public Power District is slated to share in some of the plant’s energy production. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory ranked Nebraska third in wind resource potential last February.
