Law-makers are advancing a bill aimed
to attract more wind-energy companies.
The bill won first-round approval in a
unanimous vote. Law-makers added that at least 25 percent of the revenue from
companies' power-purchase agreements would have to go to Nebraska based owners
or a local community.
It was the second wind-energy measure
advanced within the last week.
The other bill is aimed at larger wind farms that could
export energy to other states.
