170 MW wind project in Minnesota

US, Minnesota: The project, proposed by Dodge County Wind LLC (DCW), would generate up to 170 MW of electric energy and deliver it to the electrical grid at Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency’s (SMMPA) existing Byron substation via a newly built 345 kV transmission line.

The proposed large wind energy conversion system (LWECS) consists of up to 70 turbines to be located in Dodge and Steele counties, underground electric collection lines, a new collector substation, an operation and maintenance building and DCW proposes to build between 34 to 42 km (21 and 26 miles) of 345 kV, high-voltage transmission line (HVTL) in Dodge and Olmsted counties to connect the LWECS to the grid.
