Solar power in Nebraska is rapidly becoming competitive with grid electricity, due to the decrease in cost and the eight-year extension to the 30% tax credit, which can be used to install any size system. Solar power and wind power are easily able to provide all of Nebraska's energy need, although they would require either transmission lines to provide power when neither are available, and/or storage. Estimates show that Nebraska could generate 3,832,600 GWh/year from wind, and 21% of demand from rooftop solar panels. Large area solar farms would generate many times demand.
Nebraska's largest solar installation is the 108.9 kW group of arrays at Creighton University. The second largest is the 45 kW array at the Norfolk Operations Center of Nebraska Public Power District.
