Two Wind Energy Bills Advance in Past Week

Posted: Updated:

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.
