Mt. Lake Municipal Utilities and Windom Municipal Utility recently passed a milestone.

As new transmission owners, the two utility systems received payments from the Central Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (CMMPA) for their share of the CAPX Brookings transmission project.

Representing their proportional share of ownership, Mt. Lake received just over $10,500 and Windom $28,000. In an era of increasing transmission costs due to the regional build-out of the transmission grid to meet new government energy policies, Mt. Lake and Windom partnered with other municipals through

CMMPA to invest in transmission.
