On June 17, dedication ceremonies were held for the nation’s largest wind project owned solely by a cooperative, located south of Minot, N.D.
There are 80 new wind turbines in the project, joining two “originals” that were placed in service in 2002.
The last few turbines of the project went into operation at 8:25 p.m. on Dec. 30, meeting the cooperative’s aggressive timeline to have the turbines commercially operating in 2009.
