Landowners ask for moratorium on wind farms

Laramie, WY – A landowners group is pushing for a moratorium on wind farms in the northern Laramie Range.
The Northern Laramie Range Alliance says it wants to protect the region's agriculture, wildlife, landscape and recreation opportunities from chaotic and uncontrolled energy development. But several other landowner groups have formed across central and eastern Wyoming to promote energy development as a way to earn supplemental income.
The Converse Planning and Zoning Commission is holding a public hearing on the proposed moratorium Tuesday evening.
