Lincoln (NE) Plans Second Turbine

July 1999 - Lincoln Electric System has contracted for a second 660-kW wind turbine to supply its "Renewable Energy Program." Plans are for the second turbine to be operational by the end of 1999; the initial turbine went into operation in December 1998 and has slightly exceeded its predicted output. Nearly 2,000 of the utility's 108,000 customers have signed up for the program which offers 100-kWh "units" of wind energy for a price premium of 4.3/kWh. On average, participating customers are purchasing about 150 kWh of wind energy per month.
