Wind Generated Power

Roseau Electric Cooperative is participating in Minnkota Power Cooperative's Infinity Wind Energy program. Customer interest in renewable wind-generated electricity and the willingness to pay for its higher development costs are the primary reasons why Roseau Electric and the other Minnkota-associated systems are offering a wind energy option to their customers.

North Dakota's first commercial-scale, utility-owned wind turbine was commissioned on January 25, 2002.  The 900-kilowatt wind turbine is located prominently along I-94, six miles east of Valley City, North Dakota.

Minnkota also owns and operates a second wind turbine located on a ridge three miles east of Petersburg, North Dakota.  This turbine became operation on July 12, 2002.

The turbine will generate approximately 2.5 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, enough to power approximately 200-300 homes. Interested customers of the Minnkota-associated systems have already committed to the entire electrical output of the wind turbine at an additional cost of $.30 per month for each 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind energy purchased.

Minnkota's primary source of electrical generation will continue to be the lignite-fired Milton R. Young Station, located 40 miles northwest of Bismarck near the town of Center.
