BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Public Service Commission says it received hundreds of consumer contacts in the last year that included complaints against regulated entities.
The PSC says it received a total of 905 consumer contacts in 2015. But the PSC says more than a third of them called for increased crude oil conditioning, which didn’t fall under the agency’s jurisdiction.
The three-member panel regulates coal mining, land reclamation, pipelines, electric and gas utilities, grain elevators, telecommunications and auctioneers. A big part of its recent workload has involved determining locations for oil and natural gas pipelines, natural gas processing factories, and wind energy projects.
