PSC may dismantle wind farm  

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the North Dakota Public Service Commission has the authority to regulate the dismantling of wind farms.

The commission is writing rules to govern how wind farms are taken down when they’re no longer producing electricity.

The agency now determines the location of wind farms if they’re capable of generating at least 100 megawatts of power. Smaller farms may be built without Public Service Commission approval.

Stenehjem says North Dakota law gives the commission authority to regulate how any wind farm is dismantled after it quits generating power, even if the wind project is small.
