Wind Energy Development

Much interest has been express in developing wind resources in Wyoming to provide renewable energy to western states, particularly California. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is aware of nearly 30 new wind projects which are expected to seek regulatory approval in the next few years and we expect many additional proposals as new transmission projects enter the regulator process. The recommendations contained in these documents are the result of a decision by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission (WGFC) to address the need to protect wildlife resources while wind energy is developed in the state.
