    Fact Sheet: Solar Energy Use in Nebraska

    Located between the Great Plains and the Midwest, Nebraska is home to the natural beauty of wide open spaces. The state's prairies are ideal for cattle grazing and farming, and thus the state features a strong agricultural industry. In 2007, Nebraska was home to over 47,000 farms. Because of these advantages, today the state has a great deal of potential for a thriving solar energy industry.

    ebraska currently generates about two-thirds of its energy from coal. However, the state ranks 13th in the country for potential solar power production. Its plentiful sunshine, open spaces, and extensive agricultural industry give it some of the most ideal conditions for generating solar energy in the nation. Read on to find out more about this potential industry and explore whether or not a solar energy system is right for you.

    Grid Connected Solar Power Systems In Nebraska (2012)

    • Residential Solar Power Systems: NA
    • Non-Residential Solar Power Systems: NA
    • Utility: NA
    • Total: 0.1 Megawatt
    • Cumulative: 0.4 Megawatt

    There are currently very few solar energy systems in Nebraska. With its considerable agricultural industry, which requires large amounts of energy, the state could benefit greatly from increased solar power systems. A 2003 solar energy study on a Nebraska cattle farm revealed that solar could enhance livestock and crop management by creating free power for functions such as water pumping.

    Cost of Electricity in Nebraska

    • Electricity Price: $0.12 per kWh
    • Average Electricity Bill: $140.00
    • Average Bill after Solar: $43.00

    Switching to solar energy in Nebraska can significantly trim monthly electricity bills. Average monthly payments for a leased system are only $39, leaving homeowners with about $58 in savings each month. Solar energy systems in this state take about 13 years to pay for themselves.

    Solar Radiation

    The average solar radiation in Nebraska is between 3 and 4 Kilowatt per day over an area of 1 square meter (10.76 square feet), which represents a high amount of solar radiation. Nebraska also enjoys about 220 days of sunshine each year - plenty of sun to power solar energy systems.

    State Solar Incentives and Rebate Programs

    • State Solar Tax Credit: $0.0005/kWh for 10 years
    • State Solar Rebate: LES only, $375-$475/kW
    • Property Tax Exemption: None
    • Sales Tax Exemption: None

    Nebraska still needs to develop statewide solar incentives, such as sales and property tax exemptions. However, Lincoln Electric System does offer a solid solar power rebate. Nebraska also requires all utility companies to offer net metering, and this is available for solar power systems up to 25kW. Additionally, the Federal Tax Credit applies.

    Solar Installers in Nebraska

    Solar installers in Nebraska should be licensed as electrical contractors. Homeowners can verify the license of their solar installer on the state website or call (402) 471-3550.

    Summary: Potential for Solar Power Systems

    Nebraska's abundant sunshine and open spaces already provide the ideal conditions for solar energy. Establishing an RPS and more statewide solar incentives will go a long way in helping the state strengthen its solar industry.
