Wyoming wind marks anniversary
Question of the Day
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming has marked its 15th anniversary of wind generated electricity in the state this past week.
What began with 69 turbines in Carbon County has grown into a statewide industry with almost 1,000 towers in six counties.
The Rawlins Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1f8nyxN ) that the Foote Creek I Wind Project was Wyoming’s first commercial facility to generate electricity from wind. The project began commercial operation on April 22, 1999. It was constructed along a treeless plateau midway between Laramie and Rawlins.
It is still cranking out up to 41.4 megawatts per hour of electrical capacity.
The Chokecherry-Sierra Madre project south of Rawlins is currently seeking federal and state permits.
The $5 billion Chokecherry project will be home to 1,000-wind turbines, making it one of the nation’s largest wind farms.
