About Minnkota Power

Minnkota also owns and operates a second wind turbine located on a ridge three miles east of Petersburg, North Dakota. This turbine became operational on July 12, 2002. Under a Senate Appropriations Bill, eight U.S. military installations are required to purchase a percentage of wind-generated energy for five years beginning in 2002. This includes both of North Dakota's U.S. Air Force Bases in Minot and Grand Forks. Electricity generated from the Petersburg turbine is being sold to the Grand Forks Air Force Base through the base's retail power supplier, Nodak Electric Cooperative of Grand Forks, North Dakota, and is also being sold to customers participating in the Infinity Wind Energy program. Because wind-generated electricity is more costly than Minnkota's other sources of generation, subscribers to the program are being billed an additional $.50 per month for each 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) block of wind power. This amount is being billed in addition to the regular cost of electricity. Minnkota is receiving federal and state incentives that help lower the wind energy premium, but the cost of wind power is still more than the cost of electricity generated by baseload power plants. Using current technology, wind is capable of generating electric energy about 30 percent of the time on average. Even in areas like the upper Midwest , labeled the Saudi Arabia of wind , the wind speed is not sufficient to generate electric energy all of the time. Consequently, Minnkota is offering this program as an option for customers, as there is clearly a long-term need for continuously available power from sources such as lignite-fired baseload power plants. Minnkota Power is a generation and transmission cooperative supplying wholesale electricity to 11 member-owner electric cooperatives in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. Minnkota is also operating agent for NMPA, which serves 12 municipal utilities. Minnkota's primary sources of generation are the Milton R. Young Station, located near Center, N.D. and the Coyote Station near Beulah,N.D. Together, the Minnkota/NMPA joint system serves more than 125,000 customers.
