Bluestem’s Creston Ridge project, located just west of Creston, Nebraska, or about 30 miles south of Norfolk, has eight turbines constituting nearly 14 megawatts of generating capacity. The first four turbines comprising Creston Ridge I went online in 2015 with 6.8 MW of capacity, and Boyd Jones erected an additional three 2.3 MW turbines for phase II of the project. Creston Ridge II went online in 2017.
Loup Power District of Columbus purchases all of the electricity generated at the site, and Creston Ridge generates tens of thousands of dollars in tax payments and landowner lease payments annually.
Bluestem owns and operates the turbines. Boyd Jones served as the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the project.
