BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck planners are discussing rules for small wind turbines in the city.

City Planner Gregg Greenquist says a proposed ordinance would focus on wind turbines that produce fewer than 25 kilowatts of power. It would establish setback and noise rules for the turbines and other rules for movement of the rotor blades.

A Nov. 18 public hearing is scheduled.
