Five companies planning wind power projects in North Dakota

North Dakota Public Service Commission wind letters of intent

Five companies have filed letters of intent with the North Dakota Public Service Commission to build wind power projects in the state, according to a report from the Associated Press. The five farms would generate up to 686 MW total.

According to the report, if all the proposed projects are built, they would increase the state’s wind capacity by 41 percent and cost about $1 billion to complete. Wind energy already makes up 26 percent of North Dakota’s energy capacity of 6,436 MW.

The report notes that letters of intent are not certain deals and a dozen or more proposals dating as far back as five years and totaling 5,704 MW have not been built.
