The 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 site.

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.

Another 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.
