We acquired Ashtabula III Wind Energy Center

North Dakota wind farm adds 62 megawatts to our generation assets

On January 3, 2023, we closed on the purchase of Ashtabula III Wind Energy Center. The 39-turbine site in Barnes County, North Dakota, delivers a total combined capacity of 62 megawatts (MW), harnessing some of the nation’s best wind resources to generate clean, cost-effective energy.

Ashtabula III began commercial operation in 2010. In 2013 we began purchasing electricity from the wind farm through a purchase power agreement. “Our customers have benefited from wind resources since 2002,” said President Tim Rogelstad. “Purchasing Ashtabula III is part of our least-cost plan to meet our customers’ energy needs, both now and in the future.”

We project that by 2025 our owned and contracted energy generation will be more than 50% renewable.
