Description:
Wyoming is a state of energy booms: oil, coal, natural gas, uranium, and most recently, wind energy development. Wind energy capacity in Wyoming has increased from 288 megawatts (MW) in 2007 to over 1,400 MW at the end of 2010an increase of almost 500 percent. In addition, nearly 7,900 MW of new wind projects are in the queue. Wind facilities are being built every year, as can be seen by the towers and turbines transported along the Interstate 80 corridor. Recent Wyoming legislative sessions have had multiple bills introduced relating to wind energy, resulting in new and different regulations, taxation structures, and assurances and procedures for wind developers, landowners, and counties hosting wind farms.
