RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A company has pushed back by a year its plans to apply for a state permit to build a large wind farm in Carbon County.

The Power Company of Wyoming had planned to file for the building permit last January for the Chokecherry and Sierra Madre.

But the company decided to wait after a bill was introduced in the state Legislature that dealt with funding for large projects. The bill ultimately failed to pass.

Company Vice President Roxane Perruso told the Carbon County Commission on Tuesday that the company now anticipates filing the permit in March or April of 2014.

Perruso tells Rawlins media that initial construction could begin by fall 2014.

The wind farm would consist of 1,000 wind turbines on two sites south of Rawlins.
