Goal: to minimize the potential impacts of wind energy development on Nebraska’s wildlife resources.

Purpose: through a collaborative approach, to develop Nebraska-specific guidelines and other tools that can be used to assess the risk of wind energy developments to wildlife resources and identify ways to avoid, minimize, and mitigate impacts of development.

 

Disclaimer: The Nebraska Wind and Wildlife Working Group has no regulatory authority. Nebraska has a formal state nexus for evaluating commercial wind energy development. Guidance documents or recommendations made by the group will not supersede decisions made by the regulatory authorities.
