Omaha City - Wind Energy Conservation System Requirements

August 16, 2023


There is no longer a specific wind energy conservation system permit, instead wind energy conservation systems are classified under special use permit procedures. The purpose of the special use permit is to provide for projects which have unusual site development or operating characteristics, potentially negative effects on surrounding neighborhoods, or substantial impact on Omaha's development objectives or realization of its comprehensive plan. These provisions are designed to incorporate complete review of these projects and to specify conditions by which these projects may be compatibly and soundly developed.
