The North Dakota Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing in Linton on Friday, Dec. 7, regarding a proposal to construct a wind farm and associated electric transmission line in Emmons and Logan counties.

Emmons-Logan Wind LLC (a wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources), has submitted applications for permits for the Emmons-Logan Wind Energy Center and an associated transmission line. The wind farm will have a capacity of approximately 298.1 megawatts and will consist of up to 123 wind turbine generators and associated facilities. Associated facilities include access roads, underground electrical collection systems, collection substations, an operations and maintenance building, meteorological evaluation towers, a construction laydown area, and a batch plant. The project area would encompass approximately 64,563 acres (101 square miles) located 5 miles northeast of Linton. The total cost of the wind project is estimated at $415 million, the PSC said.

The project will also include a 6.85-mile-long, 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Emmons County. The line would connect the wind project to the existing 230 kV Heskett-Wishek transmission line. The total cost of the transmission line is estimated at $20 million.

The hearing will be at 10 a.m. in the Emmons County Courthouse auditorium, 100 4th St. NW, Linton, ND 58552.

The hearing provides an opportunity for the public to contribute to the PSC’s official record. Any comments from members of the public must be received at the hearing to be part of the record. People with concerns, questions or support/opposition for the project are encouraged to attend the hearing and present their information. In­formation received after the hearing will not be part of the official record and cannot be used as a basis for the commission’s decision unless certain additional procedures are followed.
