Xcel Energy Hennepin Island Hydro Generating Station

Xcel Energy provided a great tour of the Hennepin Island Hydro Generating Station.  It was interesting to learn about the history of plant as well as the different operating components of generating station.  It is the only hydro plant in Xcel Energy’s power generational portfolio in the State of Minnesota.  The turbine hall has 5 generators, four horizontal turbines and one vertical turbine.
