Short Description
Location: Dickey and McIntosh Counties, North Dakota; McPherson County, South Dakota.

Collaborators: Global Winds Harvest, Mortenson Construction, ACCIONA Windpower.

Commissioning: July 24, 2008.

Wind power: 180 MW capacity, using 120 ACCIONA Windpower 1.5 MW wind turbine generators.

Projected CO2 emissions avoided: Approximately 550,000 tons annually.

Local tidbit: Pronounced Ta-tan-ka, it is a Lakota Sioux Indian word meaning "bison" or "buffalo".

Tatanka Wind Farm is the largest renewable-energy project in North and South Dakota, sitting on approximately 14,080 acres. This landmark wind farm will generate enough clean energy to power more than 60,000 U.S. homes. With the exception of the small footprint made by the 120 turbines, at about 1 acre each, the land use is dominated by cattle grazing and crop cultivation, as it has been for decades and generations.

Tatanka represents the first installation of ACCIONA`s 1.5 MW turbines in the U.S. There are 120 wind turbines spread over the wind farm, with 59 turbines located in South Dakota and 61 turbines in North Dakota. The electricity generated is sold into the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (MITSO), which delivers electric power to a very large region of the upper midwestern U.S
