Wind and Solar Conference
October 31st, 2019

Senator Rick Kolowski participated in the Nebraska Wind and Solar Conference in Lincoln on October 29. Long a supporter of wind energy, Senator Kolowski now has a bill in Committee to expand residential use of solar energy systems.

A few tidbits from the conference:

Nebraska is poised to “pop” with solar production expected to grow exponentially in the next few years.

Nebraska is a net exporter of electricity.

The overall carbon footprint of power production in Nebraska has already been greatly reduced by the retiring of coal and the increase in renewable energy sources, mostly wind. This trend will continue for the near future. This change is driven by market forces, not regulation of any kind.

We love public power!

For specifics please look for the presentations from the conference on the Nebraska Wind and Solar Conference website:
