Opponents of the planned Keystone XL pipeline started a fundraising campaign to build wind and solar energy projects along the pipeline's Nebraska route.

The U.S. State Department is vetting millions of public comments to its draft environmental assessment of Keystone XL. Pipeline company TransCanada wants to build the cross-border pipeline to deliver heavy Canadian crude oil to southern U.S. refineries.

Jane Kleeb, director of pipeline opponent Bold Nebraska, said the group was joining other advocates in calling for the construction of a wind turbine and a solar-powered farm in the pipeline's path.
