Basin Electric to buy power from 2 new wind farms

BISMARCK — Bismarck-based Basin Electric Power Cooperative has signed agreements to buy the electricity produced by two new wind farms in western North Dakota.

Infinity Wind Power, based in Santa Barbara, Calif., will be developing the Sunflower Wind Project near Hebron and the Antelope Hills Wind Project near Golden Valley.

The projects with a combined capacity of 278 megawatts are slated to be operational by the end of 2015. A megawatt is roughly enough electricity to power about 300 homes.
