Xcel hits Upper Midwest wind power record Tribune (Minneapolis)]By David Shaffer, Star Tribune (Minneapolis)McClatchy-Tribune Information ServicesMarch 19--Wind power set a new record for Xcel Energy in the Upper Midwest, representing nearly a third of the power needed on the evening of Feb. 17, the Minneapolis-based utility said Tuesday.The company said the milestone was achieved at 8 p.m., with a record 1,713 megawatt-hours of electricity generated by locally sourced wind power, nearly 33 percent of the power needs in the region."From our first purchase of wind energy in 1993 to the commissioning of our own Grand Meadow and Nobles wind farms in 2008 and 2010, we have been working toward this day," Judy Poferl, CEO for Xcel's Minnesota regional division, said in a statement."We have learned a lot about how to successfully produce and integrate wind energy onto our system in a cost-effective manner for our customers."Xcel, which is the nation's No. 1 wind power utility, produced nearly 12 percent of its Upper Midwest electricity from wind farms last year, the company said. Xcel is ahead of its state-mandated goal to generate 30 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, of which 25 percent will be from wind resources, the company said.Xcel Energy is currently considering additional wind resources in the region. Last month, it asked wind developers to submit proposals for up to 200 megawatts of wind resources.David Shaffer --612-673-7090 [email protected]___(c)2013 the Star Tribune (Minneapolis)Visit the Star Tribune (Minneapolis) at www.startribune.comDistributed by MCT Information Services
