Scout Clean Energy LLC reached an agreement to sell the entire output of its planned 200-MW Three Waters wind farm in Jackson County, Minn., to Minnesota Municipal Power Agency, or MMPA.
The company expects to begin construction of the wind farm in 2021 and achieve operations in late 2021, according to a June 4 news release. The project would host up to 71 2.82-MW GE wind turbines, located across approximately 45,000 acres in Jackson County.
"This purchase of renewable energy contributes to MMPA's renewable portfolio and reduces MMPA's carbon footprint in a cost-effective manner," said Oncu Er, COO of Avant Energy Inc., MMPA's management partner.
