Construction has begun on a 299 megawatt wind farm in Williams and Mountrail Counties.
The Aurora wind farm is expected to be up and running by the end of 2020. It’s being developed by Enel Green Power. The company is building it near its existing Lindahl wind farm, a 150 megawatt facility that began operating in 2017.
"We have had a good experience from the Lindahl project," said Enel senior project manager Georg Becker-Birck. "And there is continued strong interest from the area."
Becker-Birck said it is an area with a strong wind resource.
