Only 7% North Dakota workers on a wind farm project?

North Dakota’s Public Service Commission is considering approving another wind farm, and it looks like North Dakotans will end up helping to pay for it through our electric bills.

North Dakotans have until Monday, April 27 at 4 PM to submit comments. Learn more from the Bismarck Tribune HERE.
