M-Power, LLC is a locally owned wind energy development company founded on April 12, 2007. There are over 200 unit holders including: private investors, economic development organizations and 175 landowners.
M-Power's initial project consisted of 49.5 megawatt [MW] construction ready site, along with a collector substation and a 13 mile transmission outlet line. This project was sold to Otter Tail Power Company. During the same time period M-Power also developed a 120 MW footprint, which was sold to NextEra Energy. These projects are located in Griggs and Steele County, North Dakota.
M-Power has pursued a new 150 MW wind farm development in Steele County [Luverne North Field Extension] which is adjacent to its initial projects. In addition, preliminary development efforts have been made for a 200 MW project in southern Nelson County.
M-Power has partnered with Border Power, LLC of Rolette, North Dakota to form Rolette Power Development, LLC. Rolette Power has a site permit from the North Dakota Public Service Commission for a 100 MW wind farm in Rolette County.
M-Power is currently soliciting a partner or partners to complete our wind development projects in Steele, Nelson and Rolette Counties.
