OUR COMMUNITY POPULATIONSPHILISOPHICAL DIFFERENCES
U.S. ELECTRIC GRID
ISO / RT0: WHAT THE HECK IS MISO?
• The mix of resources we use to create electricity is diverse, low
cost, reliable, and increasingly clean.
• It ensures affordable electricity 24/7.
• It’s evolving with innovation.
Our 2017-2031 Resource Plan targets more than 30% of our electricity coming
from renewable resources.
• We’ve made a commitment to balance. And we’re proud to live our
commitment, in part, through or mix of energy resources.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE??
• Retire Hoot Lake Plant May 2021
• 150 MW Merricourt wind resource in 2019
• 25-30 MW solar addition in 2019 if cost-effective (to meet MN Solar
Energy Standard)
• 248 MW Astoria natural gas combustion turbine in 2021
(to replace Hoot Lake)
• Additional 150-250 MW of wind by 2023
HOOT LAKE PLANT RETIREMENT
We’ll retire the 1950s-era
Hoot Lake Plant in 2021.
• Plant capacity is 138 MW.
• We’ll replace the plant with natural
gas and wind generation.
• Fergus Falls does not have
necessary natural gas pipelines nor
the wind resource to provide a
replacement for Hoot Lake Plant.
• We're working collaboratively with the
City of Fergus Falls to manage the
impact of the planned retirement.
MERRICOURT WIND PROJECT
In November 2016 we signed agreements
to purchase a 150-MW wind farm near
Merricourt, ND.
• With this addition, customers will receive
approximately 28% of their energy from wind.
• Paired with Astoria Station, these projects
show we’re committed to providing a low-cost
and balanced mix of energy resources,
benefiting our customers and the
environment.
• Costing more than $250M, EDF Renewable
Energy will design and build the wind farm in
2019.
SOLAR GENERATION
The state of Minnesota requires us to
obtain 1.5% of our retail energy sales
from solar by 2020.
• Utility-scale installations must provide
90% of the requirement.
• Small-scale installations must provide
10% of the requirement.
ASTORIA STATION
We’re seeking final regulatory
approvals to build a new natural gas
plant in Astoria, SD.
• Astoria Station will be a 250-MW
state-of-the-art, simple-cycle natural
gas combustion turbine.
• The station will complement our
Merricourt wind project by providing a
reliable backstop when the wind isn’t
blowing.
• Costing approximately $165M, we
expect the station to be on line in
2021.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
• Should OTP be first adopter?
• Reliability / intermittency
• Distributed small-scale generation
• Cost
• Regulatory philosophy
• Changing technology – Storage (battery vs. thermal), LED’s,
electrification of transportation

  • 7. • The mix of resources we use to create electricity is diverse, low cost, reliable, and increasingly clean. • It ensures affordable electricity 24/7. • It’s evolving with innovation. Our 2017-2031 Resource Plan targets more than 30% of our electricity coming from renewable resources. • We’ve made a commitment to balance. And we’re proud to live our commitment, in part, through or mix of energy resources. MIX OF ENERGY RESOURCESHOW WE CREATE ELECTRICITY

  • 14. RTO / ISO: WHAT THE HECK IS MISO?
  • 15. WHAT DOES THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE?? • Retire Hoot Lake Plant May 2021 • 150 MW Merricourt wind resource in 2019 • 25-30 MW solar addition in 2019 if cost-effective (to meet MN Solar Energy Standard) • 248 MW Astoria natural gas combustion turbine in 2021 (to replace Hoot Lake) • Additional 150-250 MW of wind by 2023
  • 16. HOOT LAKE PLANT RETIREMENT We’ll retire the 1950s-era Hoot Lake Plant in 2021. • Plant capacity is 138 MW. • We’ll replace the plant with natural gas and wind generation. • Fergus Falls does not have necessary natural gas pipelines nor the wind resource to provide a replacement for Hoot Lake Plant. • We're working collaboratively with the City of Fergus Falls to manage the impact of the planned retirement.
  • 17. MERRICOURT WIND PROJECT In November 2016 we signed agreements to purchase a 150-MW wind farm near Merricourt, ND. • With this addition, customers will receive approximately 28% of their energy from wind. • Paired with Astoria Station, these projects show we’re committed to providing a low-cost and balanced mix of energy resources, benefiting our customers and the environment. • Costing more than $250M, EDF Renewable Energy will design and build the wind farm in 2019.
  • 18. SOLAR GENERATION The state of Minnesota requires us to obtain 1.5% of our retail energy sales from solar by 2020. • Utility-scale installations must provide 90% of the requirement. • Small-scale installations must provide 10% of the requirement.
  • 19. ASTORIA STATION We’re seeking final regulatory approvals to build a new natural gas plant in Astoria, SD. • Astoria Station will be a 250-MW state-of-the-art, simple-cycle natural gas combustion turbine. • The station will complement our Merricourt wind project by providing a reliable backstop when the wind isn’t blowing. • Costing approximately $165M, we expect the station to be on line in 2021.
  • 20. THINGS TO CONSIDER • Should OTP be first adopter? • Reliability / intermittency • Distributed small-scale generation • Cost • Regulatory philosophy • Changing technology – Storage (battery vs. thermal), LED’s, electrification of transportation
