LCG, July 25, 2001Black Hills Corp. said yesterday its independent power subsidiary had agreed to purchase a 273 megawatt natural gas-fueled power plant in North Las Vegas from Enron Corp. for an undisclosed sum.

Black Hills Corp. is parent company for Black Hills Power Co., an electric utility serving western South Dakota, northeastern Wyoming and southeastern Montana.
