North Dakota’s Public Service Commission is holding a hearing next month on the location of a proposed wind farm. It’s south of Langdon in northeastern North Dakota.
Public Service Commission President Susan Wefald says the hearing will be held at 10 a-m on May 8th. The site will be determined later.
The proposed wind farm will include 106 wind turbines. It will be capable of generating up to 159 megawatts of power. It represents an investment of more than 225 (M) million dollars.
Wefald says the hearing will allow people who are affected by the project to voice any concerns they may have about it.
The commission has jurisdiction over the siting of the wind farm including where individual wind towers will be placed.
The farm is being developed by F-P-L Energy L-L-C of Florida, Minnkota Power Cooperative of Grand Forks and Otter Tail Power Company of Fergus Falls, Minnesota.
Minnkota and Otter Tail Power will be buying the wind farm’s electric output.
