BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Public Service Commission has approved a $250 million wind farm and associated electric transmission facilities in Hettinger and Stark counties.
The three-member panel on Wednesday unanimously approved the project’s siting application, clearing the way for construction to start.
Brady Wind LLC is planning the wind farm of up to 72 turbines and associated facilities. It would produce up to 100 megawatts of power.
All wind turbines are proposed to be located in Hettinger County. Facilities located in Stark County include underground electrical collection systems and cables.
