Commission Delays Killdeer Line Decision

Posted: Updated:

The Public Service Commission has delayed a decision on Basin Electric's Killdeer transmission line.

Basin Electric says the western part of the state needs this transmission line to provide power to the growing area. The transmission line's proposal is complicated, as the line will pass through a section where parts of the battle of Killdeer Mountain took place. But the company says the line is necessary.

"We believe that this line will deliver that much needed power to the region, and it's going to strengthen the additional transmission system up there and we're going to deliver that life line to the consumers," says Mary Miller, Basin Electric.

The Public Service Commission will vote on the line at their next meeting later this month. The commission can approve where the transmission line will go, but Basin Electric must wait on a federal impact study before starting construction.
