Wahoo, Nebraska (AP) — A county committee in eastern Nebraska has approved a plan for the Omaha Public Power District to build the state’s first solar power plant.
Omaha World-Herald partners unanimously last week to approve a conditional permit for solar farms by the Saunders County Commission, despite local opposition to the project and a vote against the county’s Local Planning Commission. I reported that I voted.
OPPD announced in April that it had signed a contract to build a huge solar panel bank on 500 acres south of Utan. The project is Nebraska’s largest solar power plant and is the first step towards a utility’s plan to provide 600 megawatts of solar power.
