Use caution near Hoot Lake project sites

Despite the cool and wet weather, it’s been a busy spring for our company. This week we marked a historic milestone, beginning construction at our first large-scale solar project, the 49-megawatt Hoot Lake Solar. We also continue deconstruction of buildings at Hoot Lake Plant, which we retired in May 2021.

Fergus Falls community members may notice some increased activity and traffic near the project areas. “Please help us keep you and our employees safe by not entering project sites,” said Brad Tollerson, Vice President, Energy Supply. “And keep a watchful eye for trucks and other equipment that may be moving slowly.”

We'll finish work at Hoot Lake Plant later this year and plan to complete Hoot Lake Solar in 2023.
