Dakotas Wind Projects Driven By Transmission

January 17, 2012, 10:26 AM

Dakotas Wind Projects Driven By Transmission
SIOUX FALLS, SD -


North Dakota is poised to add hundreds of megawatts of wind energy in 2012, while development has slowed to a near stop in South Dakota.

The difference seems to be the availability of high-voltage power lines to ship the power to cities that need it.

South Dakota has more than 30,000 megawatts of proposed wind energy projects in the queue, but a state association director says he's received no indication from developers that they're ready to start building.

South Dakota Wind Energy Association executive director Ron Rebenitsch says that as far as large projects going forward, there's not much in the hopper.

In North Dakota, one major project that's been approved plus three others being considered by the state Public Service Commission could add 350 megawatts of capacity in 2012.
