New wind project to blow green into Oliver County

2/04/10 (Thu)

Back when homesteaders were cutting their plows into rich North Dakota soil, blowing winds were often unwelcome as it meant lost crops and hard years.

Today something green is blowing in those winds – green energy and a bit of green cash in tax revenue for Oliver County and a few landowners. The green will come from Minnesota Power which looked to North Dakota Public Service Commission for final approval of the Oliver/Morton phase of its new 465-mile Bison Wind project that will run from Center to Duluth, Minn.
