South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard: “I think this is a win, win, win, win. I think there are four wins here. The Deer Creek Station is providing reliable power for rural electric consumers; they’re winners. For Basin Electric, this plant fits into their mix of baseload plants, peaking plants and wind generation. The plant is energy efficient, using a combined-cycle technology. And the fourth win is the South Dakota economy. Basin Electric has brought hundreds of millions of dollars of investment to our state through the construction of Deer Creek Station.”
