The North Dakota Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing next week in Ashley regarding a proposal to amend the permit for the Merricourt Wind Power Project in McIntosh and Dickey counties.


It is set for 10:30 a.m. June 28 at Ashley City Hall, 113 First St. NW.


EDF Renewable Development has submitted an application for a revised site plan for its proposed 150-megawatt Merricourt Wind Power Project. The PSC first approved a permit for the project in June 2011 and a first amendment was approved in May 2015.


Revisions to the previous project boundary have increased the project area from approximately 10,960 acres to 13,156 acres. The additional acres did not add any new landowners to the project.


The project is situated between the communities of Merricourt, Edgeley, Kulm, Fredonia, Ellendale, Forbes and Ashley.


The hearing provides an opportunity for members of the public to contribute to the PSC’s official record. Any comments from members of the public must be received at the hearing to be part of the record.
