Commission seeks input on proposed Grand Meadow Wind Farm  

Area residents can give views about a large wind farm proposed for Mower County to state regulators at a local hearing Nov. 20.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will take public comment at the formal hearing at 6 p.m. in Grumpy’s Restaurant, 204 Fourth Ave. N.E., Grand Meadow. Administrative Law Judge Steve M. Mihalchick will preside.

Xcel Energy is seeking approval of its Grand Meadow Wind Farm, which eventually could grow to 67 wind turbines generating 100.5 megawatts of electricity.

The hearing involves the certificate of need for the project, which determines whether the project is needed and in the public interest.

The Grand Meadow farm, owned by Xcel Energy, is about half of a 205-megawatt project by EnXco Development Corp., called the Wapsipinicon Wind Farm.

The Public Utilities Commission also is taking comments about a site permit for that larger project. Documents will be available for review at the hearing. More information about the projects also is available from Bret Eknes of the PUC, (651) 201-2236 or by e-mail at Bret.Eknes@state.mn.us.

Opinions or other comments about the projects also can be sent to Mihalchick by mail at 600 N. Robert St., St. Paul, MN 55101, by phone at (651) 361-7844, or by e-mail to Steve.Mihalchick@state.mn.us.
