BISMARCK – A large wind farm is planned for south central North Dakota, according to documents filed with the state’s Public Service Commission.

The 298.1-megawatt project will consist of up to 123 turbines and is slated for northeastern Emmons County and southwestern Logan County, about 41 miles southeast of Bismarck. The project is being proposed by an indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, and the company is seeking a siting permit from the PSC.

The permit is among the largest the commission has ever considered for a wind project. Regulators scheduled a public hearing for 10 a.m., Dec. 7 at the Emmons County Courthouse in Linton for the wind farm and related transmission line.

North Dakota ranks 11th in the country with nearly 3,000 megawatts of installed wind capacity, according to the American Wind Energy Association.
