Wind energy

NextEra Energy windmills spin on the Belvoir Ranch west of Cheyenne. The wind farm has helped Cheyenne make up the sales tax losses from the decline of the oil and gas industry.

Electricity generation projects in Wyoming harnessing the power of wind are moving forward, and the industry is a fairly major player in energy production. Just like fossil fuels are abundant here, so, too, is wind as a natural resource.

Part of the reason for increasing demand for wind power is an additional emphasis on renewable energy projects. And some aspects unique to Wyoming are also driving development of the industry in the state.
