    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
