The North Dakota Public Service Commission said Feb. 25 that at the request of a local citizens group, it has agreed to delay the public hearing for the proposed Brady Wind Energy Project.
As a result, the separate public hearings that were scheduled for the wind project and the associated transmission line for March 2 in Dickinson, N.D., have been rescheduled for March 30. The request for continuance was submitted by the Concerned Citizens of Stark County. The group asked that the hearings be postponed to allow them more time to review all of the recent information that has been submitted for the project.
Brady Wind LLC, a wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, has submitted applications for permits for the Brady Wind Energy Center and an associated transmission line. The wind farm will have a capacity of approximately 150 MW and will consist of up to 87 wind turbine generators and associated facilities. The project will also include a 19-mile long, 230-kV transmission line. Total cost of the wind project is estimated at $250m, and the transmission line is estimated at $12m.
