The Basin Electric Power Cooperative has signed two power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Infinity Wind Power for wind projects to be developed in North Dakota. The combined capacity is 278 MW.

Infinity will be developing the 106 MW Sunflower project in Morton County and the 172 MW Antelope Hills project in Mercer County. The wind farms are planned to be operational by the end of 2015.

Andrew M. Serri, Basin Electric CEO and general manager, explains that the deals are a result of a June request for proposals. According to Serri, the new wind generation will increase Basin’s renewables portfolio to more than 1 GW.
