Otter Tail Power Co. has entered into an agreement with M-Power LLC to purchase a portion of the Luverne Wind Farm under development in east central North Dakota. Otter Tail Power's portion of the construction-ready site can support wind turbines with a total capacity of up to 49.5 MW.

M-Power is requesting site and transmission route approval for the full 157.5 MW project from the North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC). M-Power and Otter Tail Power expect to close the purchase later in 2008, subject to PSC approval and other standard conditions.

"While the sale is contingent on receiving various approvals and permits, completing the Luverne Wind Farm would increase the amount of economical wind-generated electricity owned or purchased by Otter Tail Power Company to 179.5 MW," says Otter Tail Power President Chuck MacFarlane.
