Wind power project

Work on a PacifiCorp wind power project in Carbon County was completed earlier this fall. The company will take ownership of up to another 129 turbines in Carbon and Albany counties when the Rock Creek Wind Project is completed. The 590-magawatt project is on 43,000 acres of mostly private land between Interstate 25 and Rock River.

The Albany County Board of Commissioners have approved a wind energy conversion systems permit for the Rock Creek Wind Project by a 3-0 vote.

The commission had tabled the project following a public hearing Dec. 7 after commissioners asked for more time to ask questions and took the issue up again this past week.
