On this episode of Inside Omaha, I talked with Eric Williams.
If you’re interested in clean energy or have ever wondered how the energy system works here in Nebraska, then this is the episode for you. Eric has a treasure trove of knowledge about all things energy. I feel like I could’ve asked him questions for another 2 hours and he would’ve had no problem answering.
It was really cool hearing about all the things happening over at OPPD. It seems like things are heading in the right direction. I came out of this conversation optimistic about Nebraska’s clean energy future.
This conversation also points to the importance of local elections and their impact on our daily lives. A big reason OPPD is moving towards renewables as quickly as they are is because over the last 2-3 elections the people of this region made a conscious decision to vote for clean energy candidates. This is how real change happens. It doesn’t happen by waiting 4 years for the next presidential election. *Steps down from soapbox*
