VALLEY CITY, N.D. — Officials say the new Ashtabula Wind Energy Center will generate enough electricity to power more than 36,000 homes a year.

Gov. John Hoeven and power company officials are dedicating the center about 15 miles northeast of Valley City.

Minnkota Power Cooperative of Grand Forks is buying energy from the center through a purchase agreement with NextEra Energy Resources. NextEra owns the turbines with Otter Tail Power Co.

The three companies also are partners in another wind project in North Dakota, the Langdon Wind Energy Center.
