BLM Plans To Fast-Track 3 Wyoming Wind Projects
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Three proposed wind farms in Wyoming are among the projects that the Bureau of Land Management plans to fast-track nationally.
One is the 1,000-turbine Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy project south of Rawlins, proposed by the Denver-based Anschutz Corp. The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/skkXh1) reported Wednesday that it’s the largest on BLM’s priority list for 2012.
The other Wyoming projects are the 25-turbine Sand Hills Farm Project northwest of Laramie and the White Mountain project northwest of Rock Springs. That farm could have up to 240 turbines.
The projects were previously listed as priorities by the state BLM office.
The new national list also includes projects in Arizona, Nevada and California.
