BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - Central Nebraska officials have dedicated a new wind farm project near Broken Bow.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1nTmd1U ) that the Broken Bow II wind has 43 turbines, doubling the number in an area northeast of the city.

Construction began in January. The wind farm was placed into commercial operation on Oct. 1.

Power from the facility will go the Nebraska Public Power District, which bought it under a 25-year contract. Custer County now has the second-largest concentration of wind turbines in Nebraska.

Melissa Garcia, president and CEO of Custer Economic Development Corp, says the project will benefit local businesses.
