Wind Turbines

CARBON COUNTY – With several power transmission and wind farm projects in the works, Carbon County is closing the wind energy gap between Wyoming and neighboring states, a county commissioner said.

“We were lagging behind because of our transmission corridor,” said John Johnson, a member of the Carbon County Board of County Commissioners. “There just wasn’t a way to get (generated energy) out. But now, with Gateway West, it seems like the wind energy companies are pushing hard to get in there.”
