The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska has experienced significant growth over the last five years. Estimated at over 10%, the growth trend has caused the tribe to examine the vital role that energy plays in supporting growth and economic development overall. The project seeks to: (1) investigate the opportunities for wind generation, improving the tribe's energy resource portfolio, and shaping the reservation load profile; (2) analyze renewable generation investment opportunities and their potential job creation and economic development benefits; and (3) conduct a tribal utility formation study to facilitate accomplishment of tribal goals.
