Poll questions wind and solar energy in NE
Wind energy in Nebraska continues to increase.
In 2015 there were some 610 turbines.
In 2021, some 1,400: that's nearly 2 1/2 times more.
At the same time, a Rural Nebraska Poll finds support for wind energy dropping.
According to the poll, in 2015 75 percent favored additional investment in wind energy but now it's less than half; no specific number is provided.
Support for solar energy is also taking a hit from 74 percent in 2015 down to 62 percent now.
At least one expert tells us it's not clear if the numbers are temporary or part of a long-term trend.
