Company Tweaks Wind Farm Plan

Posted: Updated:
A company looking to build a wind farm in the Hettinger area, announced that they will be changing the size of the turbines proposed in the original permit. Thunder Spirit Wind's original permit for the project request 75 150 megawatt turbines, but have chosen a larger turbine, which would mean less wind towers.

"In the first hearing they gave us the worst case scenario. No matter how big a turbine they use so we already asked all the questions that come about this larger hearing, but we want to make sure we don't bypass any procedures and make sure everyone has their chance, because it is a change to the approved project," says Brian Kalk of the Public Service Commission (PSC).

If you would like to request a hearing on this issue you can visit the PSC's website at www.psc.nd.gov.
