Wind

Our proposed 151.8 MW Garrison Butte Wind project is currently under development in Mercer County, North Dakota. Located in North Dakota’s top-tier wind belt, the project is sited on 22,000+ acres with a planned interconnection at GRE’s 230-kV Stanton Substation. This project site is optimal for highly efficient construction and promises to be one of the region’s most competitive sources of wind energy. A Generator Interconnection Request was filed with the Mid-Continental Independent System Operator (MISO) in March 2018. Currently, MISO expects a tentative timeline of 2021 for the project to receive a Generator Interconnection Agreement (GIA). Capital Power will be filing for both a Conditional Use Permit from Mercer County and Certification of Site Compatibility from the State of North Dakota.

Project Attributes:

  • Located in North Dakota’s top-tier wind belt
  • Net capacity wind factor projected to be 49-50%
  • 100% of land leases executed
  • Generator Interconnection Request filed in March 2018
  • Wind Turbine technology to be determined

Land

100% of long-term land leases executed for 22,000+ acre site.

Permitting

Generator Interconnection Request filed with Mid-Continental Independent System Operator (MISO) in March 2018. Project will require Conditional Use Permit (Mercer County) and Certification of Site Compatibility (State of North Dakota). Required environmental surveys underway.
