Nebraska lawmakers advance bill for wind energy

Nebraska lawmakers have given first-round approval to changes designed to lure wind-energy companies that would export the energy from the state.

The bill would allow the Nebraska Power Review Board to approve wind-energy operations designed to export energy. The bill would also ease concerns among private wind-energy companies about public power's eminent-domain authority.

Bill introducer Sen. Chris Langemeier of Schuyler says Nebraskans would be protected from rate increases because private companies would have to reimburse public power for any costs of building wind-energy transmission lines.

Nebraska is ranked fourth among states in wind-energy potential but 22nd in actual wind-energy production.
