Wind Energy-Landowners

Program aims to aid landowners with wind energy concerns


The Associated Press - August 21, 2018

BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota's Agriculture Department is launching a program to help landowners resolve concerns related to wind energy development.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the program is similar to an initiative developed in 2015 related to pipeline construction.

The program will allow a landowner or tenant who's dissatisfied by the response of a wind energy company related to reclamation of their property to work with a department ombudsman. The ombudsman can then evaluate the site, contact the wind company and work to resolve the issues.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the program fills a need for landowners at a time when more wind farms are likely to be developed in the state.

The Legislature directed the department to create the program. It was done in cooperation with the Public Service Commission, which regulates wind farms.
