Otter Tail Power Company closed on the purchase of certain development assets from EDF Renewables Development, Inc. and certain of its affiliated companies and issued a notice to proceed for construction of a 150 MWwind farm in southeastern North Dakota, a project first announced in November 2016. An affiliate of EDF and its contractors are expected to begin construction in August, with completion anticipated in 2020. This wind project will be near the small town of Merricourt, approximately 15 miles south of Edgeley, North Dakota, in McIntosh and Dickey Counties. Otter Tail Power Company estimates the project will cost approximately USD 270 million and the wind farm will generate enough energy to power more than 65,000 homes.

Otter Tail Power Company President Mr Tim Rogelstad saud that “We project that by 2021 our customers will receive approximately 30 percent of their energy from renewable resources we own or secure through power purchase agreements. The Merricourt wind farm will be the largest capital project in our company’s history.”
