PSC Approves Hettinger Turbines

Posted: Updated:

A wind project near Hettinger received the final stamp of approval from the Public Service Commission.

The PSC approved the companies applications, in October, but the locations of turbines changed. The Federal Aviation Administration initially said some of the turbines would be too close to Hettinger's airport. But after appealing, the company can now place turbines in the southwest part of the project area, which will make the farm more productive.

"Wind turbines are now going to be located has actually more wind potential than the previous location. So, what's happened now is you've got a windfarm that has better wind resources, less turbines and more efficient over all. It's actually a very good modification for the company to put in," says Brian Kalk of the PSC.

The project has received permits and approval from the county and other federal agencies. It can now begin construction as soon as possible.
