With projects popping up across Nebraska, future of solar power brightens

Graham Christensen of GC ReVOLT said he has installed five 25-kilowatt solar power systems on farms across Nebraska and is working to install three more.

Twenty-five kilowatts is about what’s needed on an average-sized farm, Christensen said, and is also the maximum size at which Nebraska utilities are required to purchase any excess power that is generated, which helps defray the cost of installing such solar systems.
