Nebraska county approves request to collect wind-energy data
MADISON, Neb. (AP) — A northeast Nebraska county has approved a request for a wind company to begin recording wind-speed and weather data in preparation for a possible wind farm.
The Norfolk Daily News reports that the Madison County Board of Commissioners approved a conditional-use permit Tuesday for Emerick Wind to construct a tower to collect the information.
The site of the temporary tower is on land about 8 miles south and 1.5 miles west of Meadow Grove.
The company Lincoln Clean Energy is developing the project for Emerick Wind.
