Why do we need NTEC?
The state-of-the-art natural gas plant in Superior will ensure the delivery of safe, reliable and cost-competitive energy. It is a connection to a clean energy future, providing the electricity this region needs while enabling the integration of renewable energy resources.
In January, NTEC project partners (Dairyland, Minnesota Power and Basin Electric Power Cooperative) hosted neighborhood open house meetings to engage with the local community. For open house materials and more information on NTEC, click here.
