STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A Duluth, Minnesota-based energy firm says it has bought a 108-megawatt wind farm near Storm Lake.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1CaYM6Q ) that Allete Inc.’s clean energy division paid NRG Energy Inc. $15 million for the Storm Lake wind farm, which consists of 144 turbines.

The just-purchased wind farm is adjacent to another 78-megatt, 104 turbine wind farm that Allete Clean Energy bought in January.

Allete President Eric Norberg says the wind farm bought this week “creates immediate efficiencies with our first Storm Lake purchase, and it complements our expanding wind fleet.”

The adjoining Storm Lake wind farms will share an operations and maintenance facility. Norberg says both are operating under power sales agreements that extend another five years.
