SARATOGA, Wyo. (AP) — A state review panel has approved a handful of changes to the development plans for a proposed wind farm in Converse County.

The changes include moving the locations of some wind turbines and a substation at the site of the Wasatch Wind and Power project outside Glenrock.

The state Industrial Siting Council approved the changes at a meeting in Saratoga last week. The council reviews major industrial projects in Wyoming to help prevent them from causing major disruptions for nearby communities.

The new wind project will consist of 46 wind turbines that will produce a total of 80 megawatts of electricity.

Developers say they made the changes to make the wind turbines less visible and less of a threat to eagles and other raptors.
