Minnesota municipalities sign 20-year deal for clean energy supply


Wholesale electricity provider Minnesota Municipal Power Agency has signed a 20 year power purchase agreement with renewable energy development company Scout Clean Energy.

Scout Energy will provide the electricity provider with energy generated from its 200MW Three Waters wind farm, expected to be completed in 2021.

The wind farm will comprise seventy-one wind turbines to be provided by GE across 45,000 acres of land.

Oncu Er, management partner at Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA), said: “MMPA has agreed to purchase the entire capacity that will be generated by the Three Waters Wind Farm. The project distinguishes MMPA as a renewable energy leader in Minnesota.”

“This purchase of renewable energy contributes to MMPA’s renewable portfolio and reduces MMPA’s carbon footprint in a cost-effective manner.”
