Idaho PUC Gives Go-Ahead to State's Largest Wind Power Plant

December 17, 2004

The Idaho Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has approved a contract for Idaho Power to buy power from a 10.5-MW wind power project near Hagerman, about 30 miles northwest of Twin Falls in southern Idaho. This ruling effectively gives the project a green light. If the developer — Fossil Gulch Wind Park, LLC — obtains all necessary permits and proceeds to build the wind project, it will be the largest in the state. See the Idaho PUC announcement.
