The generated electricity will be sold onto the Midwest ISO locational marginal price (LMP) market, a real time, pricing-node-based electricity market.

Crownbutte Wind Power, Inc.: Established in 1999, Crownbutte Wind Power, Inc., ( is a North Dakota based developer of merchant wind power parks, with a current pipeline of over 640 MW of wind energy projects in various stages of development across North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.
