With Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman on hand, Edison Mission Energy (EME), a subsidiary of Edison International, and Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) dedicated the Broken Bow wind project in Custer County, Neb.

The $145 million, 80 MW wind project is located on approximately 14,000 acres of land in central Nebraska. The facility is powered by 50 1.6 MW wind turbines, mounted on 80-meter towers.

The project will be operated by EME, and all of the power produced by the wind farm will be sold to NPPD under a 20-year power purchase agreement. The project is targeted to begin commercial operation within the next several weeks.

Construction of the Broken Bow project is taking approximately one year to complete. According to EME, the new wind farm is able to produce enough electricity to meet the needs of about 25,000 homes in Nebraska.
