New Wind Farms Could Power 750,000 Homes

by Rachel Baker on August 26, 2013

The combination of the 3 existing and one newly proposed wind farms from Xcel Energy in the Midwest could power up to 750,000 homes.

Last week, Minneapolis-based utility Xcel Energy proposed its fourth wind farm in the Upper Midwest since mid-July. If approved, the 150-megawatt Border Winds Project would be developed in North Dakota near the U.S.-Canadian border and produce enough electricity to save customers an estimated $45 million over its lifetime while reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by about 320,000 tons.
