Italy-based Enel began operations at the Lindahl Wind Farm last week north of Tioga.
The project, which cost $220 million, will be able to harness enough wind power to keep the lights on in nearly 50,000 homes.
The farm is being managed jointly between Enel Green Power North America and GE Financial Services. An agreement with Basin Power Electric Power Cooperative will allow energy generated at the site to be sold to the energy company.
In a press release, Gov. Doug Burgum said, “The Lindahl Wind Project is another example of how our state creates jobs and a robust economy with an ‘all of the above’ energy strategy.”
