Otter Tail Power Company says it has purchased the Ashtabula III Wind Energy Center: a 39-turbine site in Barnes County, N.D., that delivers a total combined capacity of 62 MW.
Ashtabula III began commercial operation in 2010. In 2013, Otter Tail Power began purchasing electricity from the wind farm through a purchase power agreement.
“Our customers have benefited from wind resources since 2002,” says Tim Rogelstad, Otter Tail Power’s president. “Purchasing Ashtabula III is part of our least-cost plan to meet our customers’ energy needs, both now and in the future.”
