Minnesota Power Offers Wind Option

Minnesota Power, which serves 144,000 customers in northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, received regulatory approval to offer a wind power option to its Minnesota-based residential and small commercial customers. Under its WindSense program, customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of wind energy for $2.50 each month, which represents a price premium of 2.5¢/kWh. Purchases are limited to 20 blocks per customer. In addition, customers must subscribe to the program for a minimum of one year. To supply the program, Minnesota Power has contracted with Great River Energy for half of the output from three new wind turbines being added at the Chandler Hills Wind Farm in southwestern Minnesota.
