Q&A for Solar Resource RFP
Q1. Does MN Power have available a list or map of substations along with minimum load or line capacities?
A1. Cick here for a map showing voltage for Minnesota Power’s system. At this time we do not plan to assemble and distribute the data you request for all of our substations as there are grid security concerns with supplying bidders with substation load and capacity.
