Ogallala announces community solar farm project with Nebraska Public Power

The North Platte Telegraph reports that NPPD, a member of Bio Nebraska, and the city of Ogallala will partner to create a community solar farm.

The city of Ogallala and Nebraska Public Power District are poised to make the Keith County seat NPPD’s seventh retail town with a community solar farm.

The project should allow the city to cut its NPPD power bills and allow Ogallala residents to do likewise by subscribing for shares, said Pat Hanrahan, the district’s general manager for retail services.
