The Nemadji Trail Energy Center, proposed by Dairyland and Minnesota Power/ALLETE, is a 625 MW combined-cycle natural gas facility. Flexible and responsive, it will serve as the "power behind the power" supporting renewable energy investments.
Nemadji Trail Energy Center will be able to ramp up in minutes, providing a reliable backbone to the system at times when other resources are unable to produce adequate electricity to meet consumer needs. Proposed for operation in an industrial area of Superior, the facility will also be an economic engine for the northern region.
The plant is scheduled to be in service by 2025, contingent on approvals. For more information, see nemadjitrailenergycenter.com.
