NPPD Pursues More Wind Power in Nebraska

LCG, August 17, 2009--Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) plans to participate in two, 80-MW wind projects located in central Nebraska. NPPD's board of directors authorized the utility to proceed with 20-year, power purchase agreements from Midwest Wind Energy and Edison Mission Midwest, who together own the two projects.

NPPD would like a total of 80-MW of capacity from the two wind projects, so other participants are needed to purchase the combined 160 MW of electric generating capacity of the two projects. The two wind farms may be operational by late 2010 or early 2011.

The planned Laredo Ridge Wind Farm includes 54, 1.5-MW wind turbines, and the project site is Boone County. Similarly, the Broken Bow wind farm includes 54, 1.5-MW turbines, and the site is in Custer County. If other participants do not step forward to buy the power output, then NPPD will proceed with only the Laredo Ridge Wind Farm to meet its target of adding another 80 MW of wind power to its portfolio.
