Citizens' group loses Wyo. wind farm challenge
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Supreme Court has upheld permits issued by the state and Converse County allowing construction of two wind farms in the Laramie Range.
Wasatch Wind of Salt Lake City plans to construct 62 towers at two locations. The Northern Laramie Range Alliance had challenged permits issued to the company by the Converse County Board of County Commissioners and Wyoming Industrial Siting Council.
