Capture The Energy

There is an exciting renewable energy program in Moorhead called "Capture The Energy®." Capture The Energy® was developed by Moorhead Public Service (MPS) to promote renewable energy in Moorhead.

If you are interested in local renewable energy, there are ways you can participate:

  • Learn For Yourself. Moorhead’s first 750-kW wind turbine went into production in 1999, the second wind turbine in 2001, and in 2011, MPS installed a 10-kW solar electric system between the two wind turbines. This solar electric system has been installed to demonstrate and study the feasibility of solar photovoltaics in our community. Please feel free to stop by the Capture The Energy Site at 2200 28th Street North and take a look for yourself.
