Xcel Energy is releasing a new round of funding through a request for proposals. Small wind projects and performance testing of innovative wind technology are eligible for this funding, which is made available under a 1994 Minnesota state law requiring the utility to pay into a fund to support renewable energy development in exchange for storing nuclear waste at an Xcel Energy nuclear power plant. Projects developed for self-generation may be located anywhere within Minnesota and Wisconsin. Proposals are due April 1. Submit questions about the RFP to Mark Ritter.
