WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) – A Kansas-based wind energy company is considering pursuing a second wind farm in the heart of the western North Dakota oil patch.

The Williston Herald reports the Williams County Planning and Zoning Board recommended approval last week of Trade Wind Energy’s proposal to put up six meteorological towers near the site of Lindahl Wind Farm near Tioga.

Trade Wind Energy senior development director Brice Barton said the site’s proximity to the wind farm makes the company fairly certain that conditions for another nearby facility are satisfactory.

The company must now take its request to the Williams County Commission.
