Xcel Energy will move forward with plans to purchase a repowered wind project totaling 120 megawatts in southwest Minnesota from ALLETE Clean Energy, as we continue to rebuild older wind sites to increase the amount of renewable energy our customers receive in the Upper Midwest. Rebuilding older wind technology with newer, more efficient equipment increases the amount of energy delivered at those locations, saving money for customers over the life of the projects.
The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approved the acquisition of the Northern Wind site, consisting of the former Chanarambie and Viking wind projects, as well as the Rock Aetna development project, on Thursday.
