MRES Launches Wind Energy Program

May 2002 - Missouri River Energy Services (MRES), a joint-action agency providing wholesale power to 56 member municipal utilities in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, has launched a new program to develop wind energy in the region. Through its RiverWinds program, MRES will provide wind energy to its member utilities, which will then set the price for their customers. Initially, two 900-kW wind turbines are being constructed outside of Worthington, MN, which should be operational in July. MRES is also making "green tags" available to non-member municipal utilities interested in developing green pricing programs for their customers. The green tags are priced at $2.50 per 100 kWh.
