The proposd 300 MW Milligan 1 Wind Project will be located in Saline County, NE.
EDF Renewables will invest more than $400 million into rural Nebraska. The Project includes more than 150 area landowners. With groundbreaking this fall, the Project will create approximately 200 jobs throughout the construction period, which will result in millions of dollars in local spending at hardware stores, hotels, restaurants, and similar businesses. Once operational, the project will generate and support full-time, high paying operations and maintenance jobs.
An estimated $100 million in property tax revenue over the life of the project, and participating landowner lease payments will inject additional income into the community that will provide financial support to reinvest into schools, infrastructure and other important community needs.
