ALLETE Clean Energy has acquired six wind farms in Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon and Pennsylvania since 2011.
Our most recent acquisition is a 101-megawatt facility in Armenia Mountain, Pa. The wind farm became operational in 2009 and has two long-term power purchase agreements in place. It is located in the PJM electricity market area near the Pennsylvania-New York border.
Other wind installations owned and operated by ACE are:
In 2015, ALLETE Clean Energy also developed and constructed the Thunder Spirit wind installation near Hettinger, N.D. The project was sold to Montana-Dakota Utilities, a division of MDU Resources Group, which now owns and operates the project for use by its utility customers. ALLETE Clean Energy and Montana-Dakota Utilities also have an agreement in place to expand Thunder Spirit. In addition, ALLETE Clean Energy plans to build, own and operate the Clean Energy I wind site in North Dakota to supply electricity to Xcel Energy under a signed power purchase agreement.
