Gov. Dave Heineman, R-Neb., joined the presidents of Edison Mission Energy (EME), a subsidiary of Edison International, and Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) Tuesday to dedicate the Broken Bow wind project in Custer County.

The $145 million wind project, known as Broken Bow LLC, is located in central Nebraska, approximately three miles northeast of the city of Broken Bow. The project, which will be operated by EME, is capable of generating up to 80 MW of electricity. All of the power produced by Broken Bow will be sold to NPPD under a 20-year power purchase agreement. The project is targeted to begin commercial operations within the next several weeks.

“This is another major step forward in NPPD’s strategic goal of having 10 percent of our energy mix by 2020 to come from renewable energy sources,” said NPPD President and CEO Pat Pope. “Our public power partners value this opportunity in adding additional renewable energy to their resource mix.” NPPD has established power sales agreements with Omaha Public Power District, Lincoln Electric System and the City of Grand Island to purchase some of the output from the wind farm.
