Excerpt from this story from the Star Tribune:
Xcel Energy has unveiled plans for the largest solar-energy plant in Minnesota by far, a $575 million project in Becker adjacent to the company's Sherco coal-power complex.
The solar plant would create 900 union construction jobs and provide enough electricity to power 100,000 Upper Midwest homes, the company said.
It would help replace some electricity generation that will be lost through the early retirement of Xcel's three Sherco coal generators.
While Xcel discussed the solar plant last year, the company late Tuesday filed its formal proposal with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The proposal is part of Xcel's response to the PUC's call last spring to accelerate investments to help with the COVID-19 economic recovery.
"The Sherco solar project will deliver more of the renewable energy our customers want while also keeping bills affordable for the long-term," Christopher Clark, Xcel's president for Minnesota and the Dakotas, said in a news release.
The Minneapolis-based company said the Sherco project would be among the lowest-cost solar power plants in the state; it's economics will be enhanced by using existing transmission infrastructure at the Sherco coal plants.

The head of #Minnesota’s largest police union believes that #DaunteWright caused his own death by not complying with police. #BrianPeters, the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association executive director, spoke with WCCO news talk radio on Wednesday. Peters did not hold back in voicing his frustration for Wright causing the incident that led to his death. “This is going to be an unpopular statement: Daunte Wright if he would have just complied. He was told he was under arrest. They were arresting him on a warrant for weapons.” The union leader says that Wright had “set off a chain of events” that led to his killing..." _______ Me🗣: Compliance politics as usual. I hate kkkops and everybody who supports them and I dont apologize for it. 😡 #TeamROB #B123 https://www.instagram.com/p/CNs66O-n7YV/?igshid=sp5yjfgi01zg
"To think of the Midwest as a whole as anything other than beautiful is to ignore the extraordinary power of the land. The lushness of the grass and trees in August, the roll of the hills (far less of the Midwest is flat than outsiders seem to imagine), the rich smell of soil, the evening sunlight over a field of wheat, or the crickets chirping at dusk on a residential street: All of it, it has always made me feel at peace. There is room to breathe, there is a realness of place. The seasons are extreme, but they pass and return, pass and return, and the world seems far steadier than it does from the vantage point of a coastal city.
Certainly picturesque towns can be found in New England or California or the Pacific Northwest, but I can't shake the sense that they're too picturesque. On the East Coast, especially, these places seem to me aggressively quaint, unbecomingly smug, and even xenophobic, downright paranoid in their wariness of those who might somehow infringe upon the local charm. I suspect this wariness is tied to the high cost of real estate, the fear that there might not be enough space or money and what there is of both must be clung to and defended. The West Coast, I think, has a similar self-regard... and a beauty that I can't help seeing as show-offy. But the Midwest: It is quietly lovely, not preening with the need to have its attributes remarked on. It is the place I am calmest and most myself."
