NSP extends deadline

Northern States Power (NSP) has extended the deadline for its Phase III wind project from January 20 to February 7. No explanation for the extension was immediately available. The solicitation, for a total of 100 MW, requires that the project or projects are in the ground by June 1, 1999. The designated site is next to the utility's 25 MW Phase I, which consists of Kenetech 33 KVS units. The Minneapolis utility is to provide a 34.5 kV feeder line to serve Phase III and the sub-station already serving the Kenetech turbines will be upgraded. Zond Corp, recently purchased by Enron Corp, won the bid for Phase II. That phase has been delayed. The utility has an agreement with the state of Minnesota to have at least 225 MW under contract by the end of 1998 as part of a deal for rights for nuclear waste storage.
