SDWP is currently operating a 10.5 MW facility in Jerauld County, SD. We are located next to a 100 turbine wind farm owned and operated by PrairieWinds SD1.
PrairieWinds is a wholly owned subsidiary of Basin Electric Power Cooperative which is the primary electric producing cooperative for South Dakota’s rural electric cooperatives.
SDWP has contracted with PrairieWinds to operate the SDWP wind farm. PrairieWinds will purchase the electricity that SDWP produces at a contracted rate.
