Wyoming Offers Ranchers Solar- and Wind-Powered Water Pumps

Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal announced in late March that the state is providing solar- and wind-powered stock watering systems to ranchers throughout the state. During the pilot stage of the new project, state officials hope to deploy between two and four pumps in each of the state's 23 counties. The new pumps will allow ranchers to reach underground sources of water in remote areas of their ranches. See the governor's press release.
