Landowners seek wind energy

Wyoming – A landowners' association is touring southeast Wyoming, talking to communities about how they might be affected by wind development. The latest meeting was in Laramie Thursday night - the Renewable Energy Alliance of Landowners spoke to Albany County commissioners and residents.
Addie Goss sat down after the meeting with Alliance Chairman Bob Whitton, who ranches near Wheatland. He believes wind development could be a saving grace for Wyoming ranchers, diversifying their incomes and preserving open space. But he says the main reason he supports wind development is he wants his kids and grandkids to have a better chance at getting a job in Wyoming.
