GF Co. Commission puts pause on wind farm applications  

Credit:  By Pat Sweeney | KNOX News | Apr. 7, 2022 | knoxradio.com ~~

The Grand Forks County Commission has unanimously approved a moratorium of up to 90-days on wind farm applications in the county.

Currently, the county has no wind farms, but a company called Whiskey Creek is inquiring about a potential site in western Grand Forks County.

Some residents are concerned about noise from the wind turbines…and are asking the commission to change its policy, which says a turbine must be at least a quarter-mile away from a home.

Some have proposed that the limit be extended to one mile.

The moratorium will allow the county planner to research the issue.
