Minn. utility seeks to acquire ND wind project

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Minneapolis utility says it plans to take over a proposed 150-megawatt wind farm near the Canadian border in north-central North Dakota.

Xcel Energy Inc. announced Tuesday that it is seeking approval from North Dakota regulators to acquire the permit for the Border Winds project in Rolette County.

The North Dakota Public Service Commission approved a site plan in 2011 for the project that was being developed by Sequoia Energy U.S. Inc., a unit of Winnipeg, Manitoba-base Sequoia Energy.

PSC spokesman Jerry Lein says the site plan permit is valid for four years and can be transferred to another company.

Xcel's North Dakota manager Mark Nisbet says the project includes 66 wind turbines in Rolette County. He says the company hopes to have the project completed in 2016.
