Invenergy submits plans for large Boone-Antelope wind farm

Invenergy, a Chicago company that owns and operates large-scale renewable energy facilities throughout North America and Europe, submitted plans Thursday to build a 200-megawatt wind farm in Antelope and Boone counties of Northeast Nebraska.

The application was made on July 15, the same day that LB 1048, a new state law encouraging wind power development for export to other states, took effect.

Invenergy submitted a proposal to the Nebraska Power Review Board to spend $448 million installing 133 wind turbines on about 45,000 acres in the two counties. One megawatt is roughly enough to power 200 to 300 American homes for a day.

Details in the July 21 Albion News Print and Electronic Editions.
