Public hearing scheduled in Bowbells on wind farm project

BOWBELLS, N.D. – The public will have its chance to voice opinions and ask questions next week on a proposed $289 million wind farm energy project in Burke and Mountrail Counties.

Burke Wind, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources has applied for permits for a nearly 23,000-acre wind energy center roughly 15 miles southwest of Bowbells, as well as a transmission line that would run through both counties.

The plan calls for up to 76 wind turbines, and a wind farm with a capacity of roughly 200 megawatts.

The 37-mile long transmission line would transport energy from the wind farm in Burke County to Basin Electric’s Tande Substation in Mountrail County.

The hearing will take place Fri., March 8 at 9 a.m. CST, at Memorial Hall, 100 Main Street NW, Bowbells, N.D., 58721.
