GRE, Great River Energy, has pulled out of Big Stone II, the 600MW coal plant just on the SD side of the border.

GRE out!!! BS II down in flames?!?!?

Given the Big Stone II plant’s role in CapX 2020 transmission in the Southwest part of MN, what does this mean for CapX 2020? Could GRE, a co-proponent of CapX 2020, pull out of CapX too??? Wouldn’t that be too good for words?

Here’s a map that shows how it’s all connected:

Big Stone II couldn’t go forward without CapX 2020. Now is the converse true?

Stay tuned…
