  1. Tenaska Acquires 470-megawatt Wind Development Portfolio

    By Editors of Power Engineering Tenaska has acquired a portfolio of three wind development projects with a total output of 470 MW. The projects, which include 270 MW in Minnesota and 200 MW in North Dakota, will interconnect to the Midcontinent Independent System Operator regional transition system. Additionally, one of them will also interconnect with Southwest Power Pool. “These wind projects are located in regions with both good wind resources and a growing need for renewables,” said Joel Link, Tenaska vice president of development. Greg Kelly, president of development at Tenaska, said the company has been able to leverage the company’s experience in natural gas power generation to enter into solar generation. PRC Wind , a Minneapolis company that sold Tenaska the portfolio, will provide support services to Tenaska as local development activities are completed. Tenaska will assume overall development responsibility including financing, construction and operations. The company also plans to use its inventory of “safe harbor” wind turbines to qualify for tax credits. Tenaska, based in Omaha, Nebraska, has developed 10,000 MW of natural gas-fueled and renewable power projects. Earlier this month, Tenaska announced its large-scale solar plant eight miles west of El Centro, California, is fully operational . The 150 MW Tenaska Imperial West can now generate enough electricity to power 55,000 homes.
