Grasslands Renewable Energy has executed letters of intent, which include initial financial contributions, with 10 wind energy developers from across Montana and the Northern Plains to join its Wind Spirit Project. These 10 developers account for over 3,000 MW of wind energy that will be aggregated, firmed and delivered to energy consumers.Â
The wind resources for the Wind Spirit Project will be collected via a series of regional transmission lines and transported to population centers using either high-voltage AC or DC transmission lines.
By combining renewable energy from multiple geographic areas with energy storage technologies and smart grid components, Grasslands says it will create a more reliable and cost-effective renewable energy supply.Â
Grasslands recently petitioned the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a declaratory order to approve the business structure of the Wind Spirit Project.Â
