Benefits of Wind Energy Touted During Trip to Ainsworth Wind Farm

Elkhorn Rural Public Power District recently sponsored a bus tour of Nebraska Public Power District’s wind energy facility at Ainsworth.

The primary purpose of the trip was to inform ERPPD customers (and particularly those who have an interest in a potential wind energy generating facility between Elgin and Petersburg) about the facts of wind energy.

Two buses left the parking lot of the appointed meeting place in Norfolk around 8:30 a.m. Monday, June 22. The purple-hued bus headed toward Battle Creek, and the red-colored bus hit the road for Elgin. After meeting their respective pick-up times in those locations, they met in Neligh for the final departure appointment.
