Minnkota Power Will Purchase Wind Energy From NextEra

Minnkota Power Cooperative says it will purchase wind energy from NextEra Energy Resources.

NextEra Energy Resources is developing a 100 megawatt wind farm addition of the Oliver County Wind Energy Center near the town of Center.

All of the energy will be sold to Minnkota under a 35–year agreement.

Minnkota says the purchase will help the company comply with federal environmental regulations.
