The initiative was formally launched Monday evening at the League of Nebraska Municipalities’ Midwinter Conference.

The N-Solar Initiative will offer a seamless, complete package of expert development services and a secure, competitive source of financing for municipal utilities, electric cooperatives, and public power districts throughout Nebraska that seek to add solar power to their energy mix.

To date, the companies comprising N-Solar have developed, constructed, or financed a combined 17.6 megawatts of solar electric generating capacity across Nebraska.
