Capital Dynamics, Tenaska to build 2,000 MW of solar projects in MISO

The deal, closed Monday, includes 14 solar projects in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator market, and the portfolio represents "a large share" of all solar projects currently in the MISO North interconnection queue, with projects in Michigan, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Minnesota, the companies said. "We are excited to be expanding our partnership and offer clean energy power through long-term supply contracts to customers in the Midwest," Allehaut said.

Omaha, Nebraska-based Tenaska has developed more than 10,000 MW of natural gas-fired and renewable energy projects in the US, including two utility-scale solar projects in Southern California in which Capital Dynamics is an investor, the companies said in the statement.
