Open house Monday for Superior natural gas plant

Minnesota Power and Dairyland Power Cooperative are hosting an open house from 4-7 p.m. Monday at the Belgian Club at 3931 E. Second St. in Superior to answer questions about their proposed $700 million natural gas plant.

There will be no formal presentations, though company representatives will be available to talk to residents.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission recently cleared the way for Minnesota Power to one day connect to the 550-megawatt plant, the cost of which it is splitting with Dairyland.

“We will be working to secure additional regulatory approvals and permits in Wisconsin,” Minnesota Power said in a news release. “Pending those approvals we expect to break ground in 2020.”
