As President of the Fergus Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, the largest professional business membership organization in Otter Tail County, I am committed to making west central Minnesota a better place to live, work, play and do business.

Producers power Fergus Falls’ economy – mainly agriculture and energy producers like Otter Tail Power and Green Plains, in addition to many other businesses. Energy reliability and affordability along with protection of our environment are always “top of mind” for these producers.

Summit Carbon Solutions has partnered with 32 ethanol plants across Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota, including Green Plains in Fergus Falls, to create what would be the largest carbon capture project in the world. Upon completion, this multi-billion-dollar pipeline can capture and store 12 million tons of carbon dioxide every year. This project helps our environment and creates extraordinary economic development across five Midwestern states – including Fergus Falls.
