South Dakota utility interested in selling power to city MUC

The unexpected interest expressed by Heartland Consumer Power District of Madison, S.D., in selling up to 30 megawatts of power to replace 30 megawatts from Great River Energy under a contract that expires in 2015 is very good news, said Bruce Gomm, Willmar utilities general manager.
