Company plans wind turbines south of Rawlins

Rawlins, Wyo. – An energy company has applied to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for a permit to allow construction of 1,000 wind turbines south of Rawlins.

Bruce Collins is a spokesman with the Rawlins office of the BLM. He says the Power Company of Wyoming has applied for a right of way permit for two wind farms. He says the notice of the proposal hasn't been issued to the public yet.

Collins says Wind is one resource that the Rawlins area has plenty of. He says the exact location of the two wind farms hasn't been chosen yet. He says the project is in preliminary stages and
environmental studies haven't begun.
