Wind development intrusion  

A North Dakota Public Service commissioner says a huge new wind energy project will show how much North Dakotans support wind development.

FPL Energy intends to invest two billion dollars in a wind farm in Oliver and Morton counties. It will be capable of generating up to a thousand megawatts of electricity.

The project includes construction of 667 wind towers. FPL Energy hopes to finish it by the end of 2012.

Public Service commissioner Kevin Cramer says the wind farm will mean a lot of disruption when it’s being built, and he says it will have a permanent impact on the landscape.

He says the project will be a test of North Dakotans’ tolerance for big wind projects.
