We’re an organization representing: members of the Nebraska wind and solar energy industry; project developers and investors; land owners; manufacturers and suppliers; counties and school districts; and the thousands of employees working in Nebraska in the renewable energy industry.
Nebraska Power Alliance and the Advanced Power Alliance represent its members in Nebraska’s policy forums, seeking to encourage and support the production of electricity through the use of wind generators and solar farms.
As part of an “all of the above” solution, wind and solar power are securing our energy independence. Nebraska’s energy future is here – and our potential is as limitless as the skies above.
The Advanced Power Alliance focuses its work in the heart of America’s most “renewable energy-rich” region. The Alliance is the advanced power industry’s voice within the fourteen states of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) and Southwest Power Pool (SPP) systems: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming.
More than 61,951 MW of wind generation capacity are currently operating in this fourteen-state region, but the industry has only scratched the surface of the market potential within our footprint. Through our advocacy programs, we work to expand transmission capacity, increase wind and solar power use within the region, and facilitate wind and solar energy export. We are leading efforts to defend tax and siting policies that treat wind development equitably and protect against the forces working to impede the growth of wind power.
