Antelope Valley Station

Type: Baseload

Fuel: Coal

Location: Beulah, ND

Output: 900 megawatts

Located seven miles northwest of Beulah, ND, the Antelope Valley Station is the newest coal-based power plant in North Dakota. Its two units, each rated at 450 megawatts, began commercial operation in 1984 and 1986, respectively.

Because of its location next to a lignite coal mine (The Coteau Properties Company's Freedom Mine) from which it receives its fuel, Antelope Valley Station is referred to as a "mine-mouth" facility.

Antelope Valley is part of a $4-billion energy complex that includes the Great Plains Synfuels Plant and the Freedom Mine. Basin Electric regularly hosts tours of these facilities for member system consumers, school groups and more. Nearly 3,500 people visit the power plant each year. Visit our Tours page for more.
