ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — Two proposed wind farms in Sweetwater County are facing challenges.

The proposed wind farm on White Mountain is moving slowly forward, though proponents are grappling with issues raised by eagles in the area. Another wind farm proposed on the Sweeney Ranch wind farm near Rock Springs is on hold.

Bureau of Land Management spokesman Lorraine Keith tells the Rock Springs Rocket-Miner ( HYPERLINK “http://bit.ly/ttUPjI” ) that Sweeney Ranch proponents are still working on a power purchase agreement.

But she says Wasatch Wind, which is sponsoring the project, is putting the farm on hold as it focuses on another site in the Casper area.

Sweetwater County Director of Land Use Eric Bingham says the county has not been contacted for a permit for either project.
