Wind comes sweeping down Berkshire Hathaway’s plains
OMAHA, Neb. — Berkshire Hathaway plans to build a wind farm in Nebraska through one of its subsidiaries. It is expected to create 350 temporary jobs and 12 to 15 full-time positions.
The Omaha-based company, led by Warren Buffet, will construct the Grande Prairie Wind Farm, which will be the largest in the state. It is expected to nearly double the current wind energy capacity in the state.
The subsidiary, BHE Renewables, plans to begin construction this summer. It will be a 400-megawatt project near O’Neill. It is set for completion next year.
