Geronimo Energy plans to build a 200-megawatt solar project in rural Cass County that would span 1,600 acres and reduce carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to taking 50,000 cars off the road every year.
The $320 million Harmony Solar Project would be built in Harmony Township, which is near the Bison substation west of Fargo, which in turn connects to the CapX2020 high-voltage transmission line that runs to St. Cloud, Minn.
If built, the Harmony Solar Project would be the first major utility-scale solar project in North Dakota. Cass County Electric Cooperative began operating its Prairie Sun Community Solar project, a 102-kilowatt community solar garden, in 2016 along 63rd Avenue South in Fargo.
