Hearing set in Mandan on proposed $153 million wind farm

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing in Mandan on a proposed $153 million wind farm and associated electric transmission line in Oliver and Morton counties.

A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources is planning a wind farm of up to 48 turbines and associated facilities on about 34 square miles in northeastern Morton County and southeastern Oliver County. It would produce up to 100 megawatts of power.

The project also is to include a 4 ½-mile-long, $11.4 million transmission line to connect the wind farm to the power grid.

The hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. CDT Wednesday at Mandan City Hall.
