Kelly just emailed us to alert us to a new coal plant proposed in South Dakota for Minnesota consumers.

The proposed project is called the NextGen Energy Facility. You can see Basin Electric Power Cooperative's service area map at this link.

All of the public scoping meetings for the project's Environmental Impact Statement are scheduled to be held in South Dakota, not in the states that Basin says would be markets for the power.
