Jobs, Millions of Dollars of Investments on the Line
RES Americas First to Join
LINCOLN – The Nebraska Energy Export Association announced today that the organization has begun accepting membership from wind developers interested in investing in projects in the state should changes in state law be adopted by the Nebraska Legislature and signed into law by the Governor.
According to Tim Geisert, president of the Nebraska Energy Export Association, the group has focused on landowner membership since forming the statewide organization last year.
“We are pleased with the positive discussions that are now taking place in the Legislature, the news media, coffee shops and kitchen tables across Nebraska. NEEA members from Scottsbluff to Omaha are encouraged by those discussions and the economic opportunities that will be realized for all Nebraskans should the State open its doors to wind development.”
“RES Americas is excited to join the conversation on renewable energy in Nebraska with membership in the Nebraska Energy Export Association,”
Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc.
