Imagine you have $1.5 billion to invest in energy. Do you spend it on clean and affordable Nebraska wind or dirty and costly Wyoming coal?
That’s the decision facing Nebraskans — and the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) appears to be pushing a risky and costly $1.5 billion bet on dirty coal. Investing more money in dirty coal sends our hard-earned money out of state, despite the fact that Nebraska has the 4th best wind resource in the country, but ranks only 25th in installed wind capacity, well behind all six states that border us.
Send a message to the Nebraska Public Power District urging them to invest in affordable, local wind energy!
