Wind farm developers withdraw plans for E. Idaho project  

A Seattle company has withdrawn plans to develop a wind farm in Eastern Idaho because local government leaders failed to properly notify affected landowners.

But Rich Rayhill, vice president of Ridgeline Energy, says the setback is only temporary. He says the company will resubmit plans to erect 300 wind turbines in Bingham County early next year.

The project has drawn some opposition because it’s planned across more than 17,600 acres along the rim of Wolverine Canyon, a popular recreation area for anglers, snowmobilers and hunters.

Detractors say the wind farm would industrialize the canyon

The Bingham County Commission delayed a public hearing on the project Tuesday after learning that 75 landowners in two subdivisions near the site were not made aware of the hearing.
