Generation Portfolio

Generation resources

Minnkota's electric generation portfolio includes a diverse mix of coal, wind and hydro resources. In terms of nameplate electric generation capacity, about 55 percent is derived from coal, 34 percent from wind, 8 percent from hydro and 3 percent from other resources.


Minnkota participates in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) wholesale energy market to both buy and sell surplus power. MISO is a not-for-profit, member-based organization.


All of Minnkota's generation and load is modeled, scheduled, dispatched and settled financially in the MISO market.
