out at a great price versus trucking them"A train carrying 36 blades for wind turbines will leave the facility once a week That means 36 fewer semis meant to haul blades will be free to haul something else once a week cutting down expenses shipment time and truck trafficDozens of blades are waiting at the railyard to be shipped to Kansas and California as staff work to load the white giants onto railcarsThe construction of the rail facility is just one indicator of the wind industry’s growth The sector in the US had its second-strongest quarter and the American Wind Energy Association announced Thursday that near-record growth made wind energy the largest source of renewable electric capacity in the US ahead of hydropowerOut of the roughly 3000 megawatts in wind farms that went online in the past decade 1000 megawatts were completed in the last 10 months"That’s the way it is just surging on us" North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Randy Christmann saidWind boomThe construction of wind farms in North Dakota began in the late 1990s and only recently have started to surge in the past several years Christmann said The potential for capturing wind for energy in North Dakota is high particularly in the western and south-central part of the state according to the US Energy Information Administration which ranked North Dakota in 2014 sixth for wind energy potential and 11th in utility-scale generation"We see incredibly strong activity across the country" AWEA senior analyst Hannah Hunt said "We do expect to see this success story continue"Hunt said 89 percent of the wind farms installed last year occurred in the Midwest AWEA estimated wind power could double its output over the next five years supplying 10 percent of US electricity by 2020 and 20 percent by 2030 Texas is the leader in producing wind energy—last year it became the first state to surpass a capacity of 20000 megawatts Of the 41 states that have wind farms North Dakota ranked fourth in terms of installation of wind energyHunt said building farms and producing wind energy has become more affordable in recent years Wind towers are larger and produce more power than early models As technology advances more companies have looked to get into the sector whether as manufacturers or customers Hunt said That means more jobs"We know now that—this is a statistic reported through the US Department of Labor—the wind turbine technician position is the fastest-growing job in the United States" Hunt said adding there has been a two-thirds reduction in cost in building turbines in the past seven yearsSubsidiesWhile wind energy has become more economical than previous years there is no doubt that subsidies from the federal government have helped it alongCompanies have used tax credits to subsidize wind projects across the country including in North Dakota After being renewed several times the 2015 Congress agreed to phase out the Renewable Electricity Production Tax Credit on an 80-60-40 percent schedule with the credit ending in 2019Christmann cited tax credits that have been extended to wind companies over the years as a catalyst for the wind energy’s growth with many trying to qualify for subsidiesHunt called the tax credits a success policy that helped the wind industry grow and produce as much energy as possible"The phaseout is a done deal" she saidCompetition and oppositionNot everyone in North Dakota has been receptive to the wind energy sector Landowners in Stark County protested an 87-turbine wind farm last year that ultimately was approved by the Public Service Commission Before that the PSC maybe heard from one or two opponents The Stark County project proposed by NextEra Energy Resources presented 15 hours of testimony the longest PSC hearing on a wind project"It’s getting more noticeable" Christmann said of opposition to wind farms in North DakotaAs wind farms first came to North Dakota they were seen as novelties But as more were built residents in certain areas became vocal citing concerns of increased traffic during construction as well as wind blade and shadow noiseThere also has been concern from the coal industry about wind saturating the market North Dakota’s coal industry one of the state’s top sectors has the capability to produce 4000 megawattsCapacity is how much energy can be produced though most producers’ actual output is less Wind farms average about 25 percent of their capacityThe ability to capture wind may be one of the reasons North Dakota has seen growth in the industry Some wind farms have the ability to capture 40 percent or 1200 megawatts per hour of capacityUS Rep Kevin Cramer said he doesn’t foresee the tax credit’s phaseout being dragged on or shortened The former North Dakota public service commissioner and President Donald Trump’s energy adviser said he never imagined the wind sector would get as large as it did He called wind farms a "serious threat" to the coal industry which has seen rollbacks in production and the shuttering of plants—North Dakota’s Stanton Station in central North Dakota announced it would shut down by May"That seems like a saturated market" Christmann said "If we continue to build wind as it is being built you will see less energy from coal"It’s hard to say how much the wind industry will expand but subsidies will help the sector "explode" if the federal government wishes to offer tax credits Christmann said"It doesn’t matter whether these are needed" he said "There is money to be made just for building them"’Big deal’ for Grand ForksA world leader in producing turbine blades LM is one of the largest manufacturers in North Dakota with more than 1000 employees said Keith Lund vice president of the Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corp In the past four months alone the company added 200 positions"In many cases rail transportation is the most effective mode" Lund said adding the rail facility makes the company competitive across the country "This facility provides the necessary options for customers of LM Wind Power"LM Human Resources Manager Tricia Weber told the Herald most of the employees hired in recent months would work on bladesThe addition of jobs is in sharp contrast to the company’s decision to lay off hundreds of workers in the early 2010s leaving the Grand Forks plant with 270 employeesLM added more employees in recent years and announced in October that General Electric would purchase the blade manufacturer for $165 billion The sale likely will be finalized later this yearLund said North Dakota’s potential for wind development could create jobs not just in the wind industry but for construction maintenance and manufacturing workersThe rail facility can be used to ship other products Business leaders in Grand Forks have been talking about the facility and what it could do for the citySpicer said he was happy to hear people thought the rail facility was a "big deal""I think there are just opportunities all over the place" Spicer said "We definitely have the opportunity to put growth in Grand Forks"Herald reporter Sam Easter contributed to this reportThis election season’s debates have been big winners for the cable networks that have played host to them and on Saturday CBS hopes to repeat the phenomenon But while an onslaught of debates may seem like par for the primary course these days that wasn’t always the case Widely broadcast presidential primary debates date back to 1948 when Republican candidates Harold Stassen and Tom Dewey participated in a debate in Oregon that was aired on the radio Both parties held broadcast primary debates years before the famous 1960 televised debate between Nixon and Kennedy (Primary debates and general-election debates are two different beasts in many ways; notably the primary debates are organized by the parties while the later debates are organized by a bipartisan commission) But even as televised debates were proven to be able to create news they remained fairly few and far-between Their news-creating ability it turned out was a problem Due to the Federal Communications Commission rule that stations had to make equal time available for all candidates many opted to allot no time to any of them Under the original wording of the law anyone who was a “legally qualified candidate” could technically claim their time if a debate took place between major candidates and excluded others As TIME noted the rule had been meant to encourage debate by avoiding networks favoring one candidate but in practice it wiped politics off television (The rule does apply to officially declared candidates in the primary; last month Lawrence Lessig asked NBC affiliates for equal time after Hillary Clinton appeared on Saturday Night Live) Even after a 1959 amendment made exemptions for “bona fide news” the law had to be suspended temporarily to allow Nixon and Kennedy to debate in 1960 without opening the gates to third-party candidates Starting in the 1970s outside groups could organize debates which could then be covered by the networks as news events (The League of Women Voters was the dominant player in that arena for many years) In 1983 the law changed again As TIME explained the Federal Communications Commission decided that stations could stage their own debates without regard to equal time regulations by classifying debates sponsored by stations as news events too It was a controversial decision: Executives of the three commercial networks happily predict a marked increase in the number of televised debates NBC ABC and CBS have already dispatched telegrams to the Democratic and Republican National Committees inviting candidates to participate in on-air debates some time next year Broadcasters maintain that they will be able to bring greater flair to staging the encounters than the league was able to do Says CBS Senior Vice President Gene Mater: "We can do a better job Communications is our business" Others are not so sure Dorothy S Ridings president of the League of Women Voters believes that the decision allows broadcasters "to make as well as cover news" giving them far too much power in the process Andrew Schwartzman head of the Media Access Project in Washington contends that since local broadcasters are likely to have "family business partners and friends involved in local politics" their judgment in choosing candidates for station-sponsored debates might be suspect Whether the decision maximizes coverage of the candidates or simply minimizes the restraints on broadcasters to cover the candidates as they see fit remains to be seen It will be up to the viewer and the voter to decide Read more about the 1983 rule change here
