Wind turbine plant gets tax credits for Iowa, Nebraska plants

Posted:

GRAND ISLAND, NE (KWWL) - More than 200 jobs could be added in Grand Island, Neb. if TPI Composites Inc. builds a wind turbine plant there as federal officials expect.  The White House and U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson announced Friday that the Scottsdale, Ariz., company would receive $5.1 million in federal tax credits to build a Grand Island plant and $3.9 million to expand an existing plant in Newton, Iowa.  But local and state economic development officials in Nebraska say TPI has not picked a location in Grand Island and hasn't confirmed plans to build a plant there.  TPI said in a statement that the tax credits will help it expand operations, but the company's not ready to announce specific project plans.
