Wind collector system to notify certain telecommunications companies.
Any person, any political subdivision of this state, or any other public or private
entity, however organized, that constructs, maintains, or operates a wind collector system for the
purpose of producing electric energy shall, prior to the conclusion of planning for construction of
any such project, notify in writing any telecommunications company having telecommunications
facilities located within one mile of the proposed site, according to the records of the one-call
notification system established by chapter 49-7A, of the intent to construct and the proposed
location of the wind collector system. The telecommunications company shall contact the developer
of the wind collector system at the address given in the notice required by this section within thirty
days of the notice required by this Act and request a planning meeting to be held within thirty days
of the request with the developer of the wind collector system at a location mutually convenient to
both parties. A planning meeting, once properly requested, shall be held and attended by
knowledgeable representatives of the parties. If no request for a planning meeting is made, the
developer is not required to meet with the telecommunications company. At the meeting the parties
may discuss any concerns with the location or engineering design of the wind collector system,
including the avoidance of inductive interference associated with the project.
