Project will expand wind portfolio to 640 MW across five states
ALLETE Clean Energy (ACE) on Thursday announced plans to build, own and operate a 100-megawatt wind farm in Morton and Mercer counties in North Dakota that will supply electricity to Xcel Energy under a signed power purchase agreement (PPA).
Under development since 2011, the Clean Energy 1 project located north of Glen Ullin, N.D., has received permits from the North Dakota Public Service Commission and has landowner agreements in place. Construction is expected to begin in 2018 under a 20-year power purchase agreement between ACE, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ALLETE Inc., and Xcel Energy. The project is expected to be complete in 2019. The PPA is subject to regulatory approval.
