North Dakota Public Service commissioners will be in Grand Forks on Wednesday to meet with Air Force officials about the impact of potential wind farms and the base’s mission.

On the heels of Sweden’s decision to halt all wind farm activity within @25 miles of 10 military airfields, The Grand Forks Herald report that the US Air Force and the North Dakota Public Service Commission will meet to discuss the impact of potential wind farms and the base’s mission.

According to the article, Commissioner Tony Clark stated, “In discussions I have had with Grand Forks officials, it has become clear that wind farm siting and permitting is a significant concern.  “My goal is to ensure that any wind farms that are built in North Dakota are done in such a way that they do not interfere with the critical missions of our state’s air bases.

Good for North Dakota for delving into the issue and not taking the Oregon “pass.”
