State Approves Another Wind Farm; Exceeds State's Renewable Goal; No Customer For The Electricity But Other Than That Makes Sense ... I Guess

Original Post

The Dickinson Press is reporting, these data points for the Thunder Spirit Wind LLC wind project:
  • 75 turbine-wind-farm near Hettinger
  • $300 million project
  • one commissioner cited 2007 ND legislation mandating 10% of state's energy production from renewable sources (such as wind) by 2015
  • one commissioner noted that the 10% mandate had been surpassed
  • no customer for electricity from this wind farm yet
  • one commissioner suggested the oil patch might benefit from the electricity
