NextEra will build a 300-MW wind facility dubbed Emmons-Logan in south-central North Dakota.
The development comes as part of a power-purchase agreement with Great River Energy, a wholesale energy provider to 28 distribution cooperatives in Minnesota.
Construction on Emmons-Logan will begin in 2019 and the 133 GE turbines will be in place and commissioned at the end of that year.
When Emmons-Logan is completed, Great River Energy’s wind capacity will surpass 700 MW.
The energy provider already purchases 151 MW of energy from two NextEra’s wind energy centers in eastern North Dakota and northwest Iowa.
