Invenergy, a developer of clean energy generation facilities, has started commercial operation of its 200.6 MW Prairie Breeze wind farm in Nebraska.

The project is sited on private land in Antelope, Boone and Madison counties, and the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) is purchasing the wind farm's output under a long-term agreement.

"OPPD voluntarily committed to produce 10 percent renewable energy for retail sales by 2020. With this project, we will already surpass that goal," says Dean Mueller, the OPPD's division manager of sustainability and environmental stewardship. "In fact, by 2017, OPPD will have a renewable energy portfolio of 30 percent."
