Feds Give Priority Reviews To Wyo. Energy Projects

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The decision by the federal government to give priority review to three Wyoming wind generation projects and two transmission line projects bodes well for the state’s burgeoning renewable energy industry.

Last week, the Bureau of Land Management announced it has placed three proposed Wyoming wind generation projects on its list for fast-track review. In October, the federal government included two planned Wyoming power transmission lines for accelerated review.

Any such projects built on federal land are subjected to time consuming environmental and other types of study in order to get the required permits.

Loyd Drain of the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority says it’s difficult right now to say exactly how much time will be shaved off individual projects, but he says any time saved is a plus.
