While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    The California-Wyoming Wind Connection

    California policies pose challenge for Wyoming wind farm

    Heather Richards, September 4, 2017 (Casper Star-Tribune)

    “The proposed Chokecherry Sierra Madre wind energy project being developed by a subsidiary of oil and gas company Anschutz Corp., is expected to bring $847 million in tax dollars to [Wyoming] over the first 20 years of operation…[and it] will be the largest wind project in Wyoming and significantly increase the [state’s] wind energy capacity…But it was never designed to provide power to Wyoming, where demand is met by companies like Rocky Mountain Power and cooperatives like Basin Electric Power with a mix of wind, gas and coal-fired electricity…The energy generated from the proposed 1,000-turbine site will be carried along a high power transmission line to California and the desert southwest…[where] electricity demand is high, renewables are preferred and an open market for diverse power sources is robust…[but] California’s policies are prompting a spike in solar development that will likely exceed the amount needed to meet California’s renewable power standards…Chokecherry’s first phase of development has taken about a decade to get through permitting, and the parent company has spent nearly $100 million on both the wind farm and the proposed transmission line so far…[Developers believe the market is there but there is now much more uncertainty]…” click here for more
