Lincoln (NE) Installs Second Turbine

November 1999 - Lincoln Electric System (LES) has completed the installation of a second wind turbine to supply its "Renewable Energy Program." To date, the utility has received customer commitments for about 2,600, 100-kWh monthly blocks of power, for which it charges a rate premium of 4.3¢/kWh. LES is still about 200 blocks short of fully subscribing the second turbine.

LES will continue to offer a renewable energy option to customers, although it has no plans to install a third wind turbine. The utility is, however, considering the possibility of installing another type of renewable resource, such as a landfill-gas facility.
