Thunder Spirit's turbines are generating electricity

Nov 9, 2015

The first five of 43 wind turbines at ALLETE Clean Energy's Thunder Spirit wind farm have begun generating electricity. 

Spokeswoman Amy Rutledge says the rest of the turbines should be online within the next couple of weeks.  The Thunder Spirit wind farm will generate 107 megawatts of wind power for customers of Montana-Dakota Utilities.  Rutledge says the wind farm is near the community of Hettinger, which became very involved in the installation.
