One area wind project OK’d, another delayed

ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission had a chance Thursday to approve projects for more than 200 wind turbines across southern Minnesota. However, only one wind company left the meeting happy.

Pleasant Valley’s 301-megawatt project, which could span up to 72,000 acres across Mower and Dodge counties, was approved by the PUC after mere minutes of discussion. Immediately afterward, National Wind tried to cast its 78-megawatt project in Goodhue County under the same light.

It didn’t work.

After nearly five hours of discussion and debate with township, county and state officials as well as citizens, the PUC decided to withhold a certificate of need and a final site permit until an administrative law judge can take a closer look at the AWA Goodhue project.
