Technical details

Harnessing the power of the wind makes greening the grid a breeze!

The Crow Lake Wind Emissions Reduction Project (Project) consists of electricity generation from a renewable source. The project is interconnected to the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) – Upper Great Plains East (UGPE) bulk transmission system, which is located within the Midwest Reliability Organization (MRO) region. Through the installation of 108 turbines with a total capacity of 162 MW, the project activity results in the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) through displacement of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion for electricity generation.

Cloverly buys offsets that meet accepted standards for being real, measurable, verifiable, permanent, and additional. "Additional" means that the carbon savings would not have happened without the offset project and that the project would not have happened unless it got certified to sell carbon offsets. Verra oversees verification of the Crow Lake Wind Emissions Reduction Project. You can find verification documents at https://registry.verra.org/app/projectDetail/VCS/756.

Projects can produce many offsets during a year. So a project may appear more than once in the Cloverly portfolio. You can tell the year of this offset by the date in the web address: "[number]-months-starting-[month]-[year]." For a list of all the projects in our portfolio and an interactive map, see https://dashboard.cloverly.com/offsets. Learn more about Cloverly at https://cloverly.com.
