S.D. Farmers Celebrate Another Victory Over Carbon Capture

South Dakota has once again said no to carbon-capture pipelines.

On Monday, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) unanimously denied Summit Carbon Solutions’ application for a state permit to install a carbon-capture pipeline across central and eastern South Dakota.

The motion came from the PUC’s lead staff attorney, Kristen Edwards, who maintained that Summit could not meet pipeline moratorium and set-back ordinances passed in four counties.
