Statistical or Overview Information

Start Date: August 2020

Completion Date: December 2020

Wind and Solar unite at Wanzek’s cutting-edge project, Red Lake Falls (RLF), Wanzek’s first ever Solar and Wind hybrid project. RLF’s technology allows for both wind and solar generation to work together on optimally producing electrical energy to the local grid. The system connecting the solar and wind components is a WISE system, which includes controls, monitoring and metering in one system to maintain optimum performance of power distribution. The solar field consists of 2,380 solar modules on a fixed tilt system, in connection with two 2.3 MW GE wind turbines. Wanzek’s Renewable Service, Wind Construction, Solar Construction and Solar Services teams joined forces to accomplish the successful build of the Red Lake Falls Project.

Project Scope:

  • 1 MW of solar as a backup system
  • GE 2.3 MW turbines (2), 80-meter hub height, 116-meter rotor
  • GE WISE integration system for the solar/wind coupling into the substation
  • Substation built in-house

Location Red Lake Falls, MN
