Dakota Range III Wind Project Proposed For Northeastern SD

There's another wind-power project proposed for northeastern South Dakota.

Apex Clean Energy wants state approval to build up to 42 turbines and eight miles of transmission line in Grant and Roberts counties.

The project is called Dakota Range III. The state Public Utilities Commission will consider it in the months ahead.

A public input meeting is scheduled for December 19 at 6 p.m. at Summit School.

Copies of the application are at the Grant County and Robert County auditor offices.

The estimated cost is $200 million. It would produce up to 151 megawatts of electricity and could be in service by the end of 2020.

The Dakota Range III project is proposed to interconnect with the MISO grid via a switching station being constructed by Otter Tail Power Co.

Dakota Range does not yet have a purchaser for the power.
