Wind farm hearing scheduled

The North Dakota Public Service Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the Foxtail Wind project for 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 20, at the Fireside Restaurant in Ellendale.

Foxtail Wind is a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources and has applied for a permit for a 150-megawatt wind farm consisting of up to 75 turbines.

The project includes 20,000 acres of land in western Dickey County and will be constructed and operated by Xcel Energy, pending approval of the transfer of the site certificate.

The hearing provides an opportunity for the public to make on-the-record comments regarding the project. People with concerns or questions, either in support or opposition to the project, are encouraged to attend.
