EIS-0435: Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Modification of the Groton Generation Station Interconnection Agreement, Brown County, South Dakota

In response to a request from Basin Electric Power Cooperative (Basin Electric), Western Area Power Administration (Western) proposes to modify its interconnection agreement with Basin Electric for the Groton Generation Station to eliminate Western’s 50-megawatts (MW) annual average operating limit. The Groton Generation Station is located about 5 miles south of Groton, South Dakota. Basin Electric needs to eliminate the operating limit to help serve increased load demand for electric power in the eastern portion of its service area
