BISMARCK – The North Dakota Public Service Commission unanimously approved permitting construction on a massive wind farm near Hebron, N.D., on Monday.

The 110-megawatt Sunflower Wind project will include 59 wind turbines across 12,700 acres of private land. It will span south of Hebron, west of Glen Ullin and east of Richardton.

Access roads, electrical collection systems, an operation and maintenance building, a substation and an interconnection yard where the project will interconnect to a transmission line will also be constructed. Energy company Sunflower plans to begin construction in 2015.

During the meeting, Commissioner Randy Christmann expressed weariness over a statewide proliferation of wind power, which he called unreliable.

Environmental Protection Agency regulations have restricted building more consistent, demand-meeting coal-burning power plants, he said.
