Siting and Interconnection

The Minnesota Legislature has established a state policy to site large wind energy conversion systems (LWECS, systems five megawatts and over) in an orderly manner compatible with environmental preservation, sustainable development, and the efficient use of resources. The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (Commission) has authority to permit LWECS projects.   Small wind energy conversion systems (less than five megawatts) are permitted according to local ordinances. General information and state permitting project docket listings are available on our website.
