HETTINGER, N.D. (AP) - Residents are debating whether to allow a proposed $350 million wind farm in Adams County, in far southwestern North Dakota along its border with South Dakota.
Details of the project were outlined on July 29 at a meeting of the county's planning and zoning commission. It would still need approval from the state Public Service Commission, which has scheduled a hearing in Hettinger next month.
The Dickinson Press reported that the project would place up to 75 wind turbines in the county, which borders South Dakota in the far southwestern corner of the state.
Developers say the farm would provide $800,000 to be split among landowners and pump about $650,000 in tax revenue to the county each year.
The commission did not vote on the proposal and placed it on the agenda for its next meeting, which has not been scheduled.
