Central Nebraska wind farm to fire up soon  

Credit:  columbustelegram.com October 17, 2012 ~~

Developers expect to harvest enough power from a central Nebraska wind farm to meet the needs of about 25,000 homes.

Government, utility and company officials gathered Tuesday near Broken Bow to dedicate the Broken Bow Wind project, which was developed and will be run by Edison Mission Energy, of Santa Ana, Calif.

The Grand Island Independent says (http://bit.ly/T0vnYq) a brisk wind blew at the ceremony, prompting Edison Mission Energy President Pedro Pizarro to remark that Nebraska is a “really good wind resource.”

The farm’s 80 turbines stand more than 262 feet high and stretch across about 14,000 acres of central Nebraska fields. Commercial operation is expected to begin within weeks.
