DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Minnesota Power is planning to begin construction this year on a 200 megawatt expansion of its Bison wind energy project. The expansion will increase the company's wind portfolio by more than 50 percent totaling more than 600 megawatts of wind power generation. The energy generated by the Bison project near Salem, North Dakota, is transmitted to Minnesota Power's Arrowhead Substation near Duluth over a 465 mile direct current transmission line that the company acquired in 2009. The project also clears the way for Minnesota Power to meet the 25 percent renewable energy standard by 2025.
