Minnesota Power project gets a jolt

Thursday, February 04, 2016

DULUTH — Minnesota Power’s renewable energy portfolio has been given another jolt.

MP has received the green light from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for its major solar power project at the National Guard’s Camp Ripley facility.


Commissioners unanimously approved the 10-megawatt installation, which will be built at the National Guard’s base in central Minnesota near Little Falls on the southwestern edge of Minnesota Power’s service territory.

The $30 million project will help MP, which is a utility division of ALLETE Inc., accomplish about one-third of its requirement under the state’s Solar Energy Standard.

“Both Minnesota Power and the National Guard are on the front lines of providing cleaner energy forms,” said Al Hodnik, ALLETE chairman, president and CEO.
