Wind farm developers ask commissioners to reconsider denial
BISMARCK (AP) — Developers of a controversial wind farm near Bismarck have asked planning commissioners to reconsider their recommendation to deny a permit for the project.
Representatives from Pure New Energy USA say they weren’t allowed to respond to comments from the public at a Dec. 5 hearing before the commission voted 5-3 against the Burleigh Emmons Wind Farm project.
The Bismarck Tribune says the company wants to submit expert testimony and other evidence to respond to what it says was inaccurate or false information presented during the four-hour public hearing that attracted more than 500 people.
The Burleigh County Commission is expected to consider the request at a meeting Monday.
