900-MW Wind Project Planned in Wyoming

July 25, 2013

A developer recently filed plans for the Wyoming Wind Project, potentially adding 900 megawatts from turbines in east-central Wyoming with the state's Department of Environmental Quality. The plans call for a build-out of up over a four-year period, with the electricity sent to neighboring Colorado.

The developer, Wyoming Wind & Power, would build up to 300 wind turbines in eastern Platte and western Goshen counties. The developer plans to roll out the project in four annual stages, beginning in 2016, and aims to begin construction this year to use federal tax credits. A hearing is scheduled for September 30 by the state's Wyoming Industrial Siting Council division. See the story in Energy Prospects West.
