Gas fired electric plant targeted for SE ND

BISMARCK, ND (KCND AM) -- Under the terms of the new Xcel Energy electric rate case, the utility will be building natural gas generation in southeast North Dakota within the next 20 years.

Xcel had proposed building two 200-megawatt natural gas turbines near Hankinson.

It backed off - because of alternative proposals in Minnesota that were potentially more cost effective.

But Xcel’s Dave Sederquist says depending on demand, those turbines could be built much sooner than 20 years.
