CASPER, Wyo. (AP) ā€” Two new studies suggest that Wyoming and Colorado both would benefit by coordinating development of wind energy and power lines to carry that electricity.

One study by the University of Wyoming’s Wind Research Center shows that Wyoming’s wind is stronger than the wind in Colorado. Wyoming’s wind also tends to blow more during the day, making it more useful to meet energy needs in Colorado.

Another study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado shows that construction of power lines between Wyoming and Colorado would bring 4,000 jobs and almost $4 billion in economic activity to the two states.

The Associated Press reports the studies are part of an effort commissioned by the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority to show that Wyoming’s wind can be valuable to other states.
