All CapX2020 projects are now complete and energized. The fifth project in South Dakota was placed in-service on September 8, 2017. CapX2020 is a joint initiative of 11 transmission owning utilities in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin formed to upgrade and expand the electric transmission grid to ensure continued reliable and affordable service.
The Maple River to Red River Project will provide increased reliability of electric service in the Fargo area by reducing overloads on neighboring lines and transformers. The project will help meet reliability standards without having to interrupt electric service to customers.
