By developing our renewable energy resources we can create jobs and opportunity while protecting our environment.
We have the nation's third best wind resource for electric generation, but we're also one of the states with the fewest wind turbines. That’s because while neighboring states like Iowa and Colorado have encouraged wind development, Nebraska has discouraged it.
As your governor, Chuck will work to develop our world-class wind resource and enable Nebraskans to share more fully in the jobs, wealth and opportunity created by wind development.
Chuck will also keep Nebraska on the forefront of biofuels. He'll bring together farm, business and environmental leaders to develop the next generation of biofuels, made from grass and crop residues.
