BH Energy-Renewable Ready Program unveiled

Black Hills Energy advances voluntary Renewable Ready program


News Release - July 11, 2019

RAPDI CITY, S.D. - Black Hills Energy announced today the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission has approved its voluntary renewable energy subscription program – the Renewable Ready Service Tariff for large commercial and industrial businesses and governmental agencies. The company also announced the Wyoming Public Service Commission approved the company’s application to build a new, utility-scale wind project which will serve as the dedicated energy supply for the program.

“We are delighted by the positive response to our Renewable Ready Service Tariff and accompanying Corriedale Wind Energy Project near Cheyenne,” said Nick Gardner, Black Hills Energy’s vice president of electric operations for South Dakota. “This innovative program supports our customers’ business goals and sustainability objectives with cost-effective renewable energy produced here in the region.”

The $57 million Corriedale wind project will provide 40-megawatts of energy for Renewable Ready subscribers in western South Dakota and Wyoming, enough energy to supply up to 100 percent of their energy needs,” continued Gardner. “The Corriedale wind project will be constructed and placed into service late in 2020 and will be jointly owned by Black Hills Energy’s electric utility subsidiaries in South Dakota and Wyoming.”

“We will conduct an open period for Renewable Ready subscribers later this year and, based upon early indications of interest, we expect the program to be fully subscribed for the full 40 megawatts of capacity,” he said.

“Renewable energy is an increasingly important part of our balanced mix of generation resources,” said Gardner.  “The Renewable Ready program provides our customers an excellent choice for the long-term delivery of cost-effective, utility-scale renewable energy. This is another example of how we’re responding to our customers’ evolving needs and interests around cleaner and more sustainable energy requirements.”
