LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A proposed wind farm in northern Albany County is moving closer to breaking ground.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/29aBqJd ) that the Boswell Springs Ranch wind farm has completed its preliminary work with the county but is still waiting on state-issued permits.

Colorado-based Intermountain Wind, LLC, is leading the project, which is expected to cover about 21,000 acres and have about 160 turbines. According to the company’s permit application, the completed project would have an expected electrical generation capacity of 391 megawatts, with a duration of about 25-30 years, depending on market and infrastructure conditions.

The initial project timeline indicated construction would begin in August, with an expected completion date of July 2018.
