The North Dakota Public Service Commission evaluated and approved nearly $2.1 billion worth of siting applications for energy-related infrastructure projects in North Dakota during calendar year 2015. These projects included gas-fired generation stations, two gas processing plant expansions, two electric transmission lines, pipelines totaling nearly 500 miles and two wind farms.
The siting process requires a very thorough review and evaluation of the project. Once applications were deemed complete hearings were held to gather public input.
“These are the projects that will make our energy systems safer, more efficient, and less of a burden for the general public,” said Commissioner Randy Christmann.
