Power District Opts to Pay for Wind Energy

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) Board of Directors agreed to become one of the participants in a new 60 MW wind farm being constructed by the Nebraska Public Power District. OPPD will pay US$1.2 million annually as a project participant, and receive 10 MW of the facility’s wind-generated electricity once it is completed. The wind farm is being developed near Ainsworth, Nebraska. It is expected to consist of thirty-six 1.65 MW wind turbines. One MW is enough to supply the electrical needs of approximately 200 average homes in the metropolitan area.
