Minnkota Power Coop Announces Infinity Wind

Minnkota Power Cooperative, a generation and transmission cooperative operating in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, is offering member distribution cooperatives and municipals the chance to purchase wind-generated power through a program called "Infinity Wind Energy." Nine of 12 member distribution cooperatives are participating in the program, through which customers can choose to purchase 100-kWh blocks of wind energy at a premium of $6.00 per month, or 6.0/kWh. According to Minnkota, the premium could be reduced if federal and/or state tax incentives become available.

The size of the project will depend on the level of customer commitments; Minnkota plans to construct the first wind turbine when it receives commitments for 1,200 to 1,500 blocks of power (for a 600-kW or 750-kW turbine, respectively). In total, about 90,000 customers of the Minnkota-associated systems are eligible to participate.
