Minnesota Power to Idle Taconite Harbor Energy Center in the Fall of 2016

Minnesota Power will idle its Taconite Harbor Energy Center beginning in the fall of 2016. Located in the North Shore town of Schroeder, Taconite Harbor Energy Center currently produces 150 of the company's 1,900 megawatts of power. The company will cease coal-fired operations at Taconite Harbor entirely by the end of 2020. In the interim years, it will be restarted only to maintain grid reliability. The move comes as part of the company's "EnergyForward" initiative -- a road map for achieving a diversified energy supply of one-third renewable resources, one-third coal and one-third natural gas. The company will explore future options for the Taconite Harbor plant, including using a different fuel, finding a new mission or retiring the plant altogether.
