Foxtail Wind Farm

Key Facts

The Foxtail Wind Project became operational in December 2019.

Restoration crews will return in the late spring/early summer in 2020 to restore any property damages. Please feel free to contact us to process a claim for any damages the restoration crews are unable to repair, including crop damages. If you have any specific questions or requests regarding restoration please contact Sean Lawler at 612-330-1956 or We sincerely appreciate and thank you for your cooperation and patience during this important and successful project.

In a first for Xcel Energy, the Foxtail Wild Project employs radar-activated Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems (ADLS). ADLS is a new technology that will activate turbine-mounted lights when the radar detects a nearby aircraft, alerting pilots to the locations of each wind turbine. The system was designed by Terma North America.

Landowners, lawmakers, the project team and others participated in a project  celebration event during American Wind Week in August. Visitors heard about the importance of wind energy to North Dakota's economy, how the project will benefit local landowners, and plans for construction.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
