Basin Electric has solar purchase agreement with Geronimo
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A power cooperative based in Bismarck plans to buy solar generation on a large scale for the first time.
Basin Electric Power Cooperative announced a power purchase agreement with Geronimo Energy, which is the developer of the Wild Spring Solar Project.
The farm with a capacity of 128 megawatts would be the largest in South Dakota once built. It still needs local and state approval.
The solar farm east of Rapid City in Pennington County is scheduled to begin operating in 2022.
The Bismarck Tribune says Geronimo is the same company proposing the 200-megawatt Harmony solar farm in Cass County.
