BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Public Service Commission last year approved $2.1 billion worth of energy-related projects.

The PSC says that’s down from $2.7 billion in 2014 but up $1 billion from 2013.

The three-member panel regulates coal mining, land reclamation, pipelines, electric and gas utilities, grain elevators, telecommunications and auctioneers. A big part of its recent workload has involved determining locations for oil and natural gas pipelines, natural gas processing factories, and wind energy projects.

The projects approved last year include 16 transmission pipelines totaling more than 495 miles.
