Public hearing set for wind project

A public hearing in Stark County in March for a second attempt at a proposed wind energy project and transmission line project was set Wednesday by state regulators.

The North Dakota Public Service Commission scheduled a public hearing for a project proposed by Brady Wind LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Wilton, Conn.-based NextEra Energy Resources LLC.

The hearing for the transmission line is tentatively set for 10 a.m. Central Time March 2 at Dickinson City Hall, 99 2nd St. E., with the wind farm project hearing following at noon Central Time.

Commissioner Brian Kalk said the project was to be located in the southern part of Stark County 6 miles north of New England.

Brady Wind is proposing to put as many as 87 wind turbines in southern Stark County to generate 150 megawatts of electricity. The estimated cost of the project is $235 million.

The company is also looking to build a 19-mile, 230-kilovolt transmission line from the project to connect with an existing Belfield-to Rhame 230-kilovolt transmission line owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative. The estimated cost of the transmission line is $12 million.

It’s the second attempt for NextEra for a project in Stark County. A conditional use permit for a project of similar size, which was planned for a 61-square-mile area in eastern Stark County between Gladstone and Richardton, was rejected by the county commission in May.
