Definitive Wind Speed Study... Nebraska Has Commercial Wind Farm Potential
Year Average Nebraska Wind Speeds in Miles Per Hour
at 40 Meters Height
Global Energy Concepts, 1999
most definitive wind energy study is now online. This four-year study done in Nebraska of
the most promising wind energy sites has been to the Energy Office's web
The Nebraska Wind Energy Site Data Study evaluated eight sites around
the state for four years. An initial group of more than 30 locations was
identified, visited and evaluated before the final eight were chosen.
aspect of the study reviewed previously gathered wind data.
At the conclusion
of the study in 1999, the data suggested that wind speeds at all eight sites
were technically sufficient for commercial wind farm development.
