As a part of Xcel Energy’s Community-Based Energy Development (C-BED) program, Xcel Energy is soliciting proposals for Community Based Wind Projects. As of March 20, 2007, Xcel Energy is accepting proposals for new Minnesota wind generation resources to be in commercial operation by Dec. 31, 2008. To take advantage of the current federal production tax credit, proposals offering operation by the end of 2008 are of particular interest. Xcel Energy will seek approvals for any resulting Power Purchase Agreements from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission. The submission deadline is April 20, 2007.
