Nebraska is a state rich with natural resources, sun, wind, and timber. Our agricultural industries produce plant and animal matter. These resources are considered renewable because each of these sources is replenished by a natural process, making them essentially inexhaustible. These resources can be harnessed to produce energy in a useable form to power our homes, fuel our vehicles, and operate our businesses. Energy obtained from these sources is renewable energy. The beauty of renewable energy is all people can produce, utilize and consume renewable energy. The Nebraska Renewable Energy Association (NeREA) is committed to providing knowledge, education and experience to people who want to make renewable energy a part of their future.
