Feb. 15, 2010 - PRLog -- Landowner Group Welcomes Out-of-State Developers
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.  
   “NEEA’s mission is to represent Nebraska landowners and ratepayers by promoting wind energy development and advocating for the opening of Nebraska’s renewable energy markets while preserving the state’s unique public power system,” Geisert said.
   “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.”  
   “Out-of-state wind developers are well aware of Nebraska’s potential and are watching closely to see if the welcome mat will be rolled out in the near future. Should the Legislature make the changes necessary for more wind farms, developers have expressed interest in investing millions of dollars in construction, infrastructure, and jobs in our state.  As a result of that interest, NEEA is pleased to welcome RES Americas as our first wind developer member,” Geisert said.
   “RES Americas is excited to join the conversation on renewable energy in Nebraska with membership in the Nebraska Energy Export Association,” said Joe DeVito, Vice President, Development for RES Americas. “The Association has been a leader in the ongoing and productive dialogue and our company is honored to be part of the team. Together we can make solid decisions that create a stable foundation for renewable dkbvt energy development in the Cornhusker state in the future.”
   Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas), is a fully-integrated renewable energy company that develops, constructs, owns, and operates projects across the United States (US), Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.  RES Americas has constructed more than 3,800 MW of wind, which represents more than 10 percent of the operating installed wind capacity in the US, and has over 12,500 MW in development.  RES Americas’ corporate office is located in Broomfield, CO with regional offices located in Austin, TX; Portland, OR; Minneapolis, MN. Canadian projects are managed from Montréal, Québec, by RES Canada.  RES Americas continues to seek new locations for wind and solar projects as well as opportunities to participate in other forms of renewable energy.

   NEEA advisors include representatives from Nebraska Farm Bureau, Nebraska Cattlemen, two former state senators, two economists, and business leaders.  
   Andy Pollock, a Lincoln attorney, lobbyist and former executive director of the Nebraska Public Service Commission is legal counsel for NEEA.
