Video from the PrairieWinds ND 1 dedication

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.

The $250-million wind project is owned and operated by PrairieWinds ND 1, a subsidiary of Basin Electric. Watch the video below.

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.
