LINCOLN – A Michigan firm is proposing a $20 million wind farm southeast of Ogallala, Neb.

The firm, Green Oak Renewables of Bad Axe, Mich., said in a press release that the 10 megawatt project would require purchases of $4 million in local materials and labor, and pay $35,000 a year in local property taxes.

Green Oak plans to present its proposal to the Nebraska Public Power District on Sept. 1.

The project would be a big economic boost for Ogallala, according to Tim Geisert, president of the Nebraska Energy Export Association. A media tour of the proposed site was held on Monday afternoon.

The proposed Ogallala wind farm would have about the same capacity to generate electricity as a seven-turbine wind farm near Kimball, Neb., that can power about 2,000 homes.
