Major Wind Farm Could Come To Gage and Jefferson Counties

BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ A Florida-based company has filed paperwork to build a $138 million wind farm in parts of Jefferson and Gage counties in southeast Nebraska.

Documents filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission say the wind farm would generate nearly 74 megawatts of electricity from 32 turbines. 

It would be built by NextEra Energy Resources, of Juno Beach, Fla.

Beatrice radio station KWBE says the proposed Steele Flats Wind Project would be located mostly in Jefferson County.

Project manager Paul Dockery told the Gage County Planning Commission on Thursday that the 426-foot-tall turbines would be linked by underground cables and would be connected to a Nebraska Public Power District Steele City substation.
