Wind Farm Capturing the Prairie Wind

Truly a site to see, the Kimball Wind Farm was operational in August of 2002. The Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN) owns and operates the 10.5 megawatt wind farm consisting of seven turbines. Each turbine stands nearly 350 feet tall, with the turbine and blades weighing more than 40 tons.

Each turbine will be able to generate about 1.5 megawatts of electricity. The seven-turbine wind farm is expected to generate about 2 to 3 percent of electric energy for nearly 4,000 homes. The Nebraska Power Review Board has authorized MEAN to build up to 20 wind turbines at the Kimball site.
