No military objection will blow in wind  

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has informed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that the military will not object to wind farms in an area of eastern Nevada, moving a $1 billion project closer to reality.

Tim Carlson, a renewable energy developer, plans to build a 450-megawatt wind farm in the Wilson Creek Range area 40 miles north of Pioche.

The Defense Department’s agreement is “another step forward” to developing what would be Nevada’s first utility-size wind farm, Carlson said. Carlson’s company, Nevada Wind, is in talks with a partner for the project. He declined to identify the partner.

Hill Air Force Base in Utah has been concerned about wind-power projects in the area because wind turbines can interfere with radar. But Reid received assurances from Gates that the department will not object to wind farms in the Wilson Creek area, spokesman Jon Summers said Tuesday.
