BLM studying seven wind farm proposals for White Pine County  

Seven wind farm projects are proposed for White Pine County according to the Bureau of Land Management Ely District office.

The renewable energy project proposals all await scrutiny by the BLM.

LS Power Development, the developer of the White Pine Energy Station, one of two proposed coal-fired power plants in Steptoe Valley, dissolved a partnership with Nevada Wind in November in favor of seeking wind projects in Elko and Washoe counties. LS Power had proposed to develop a 200-megawatt wind farm in the northern Egan Range near Telegraph Peak with the Las Vegas-based wind farm company.

Chris Hanefeld of the BLM Ely District Office identified the seven proposed wind projects in White Pine County that are currently under review by the BLM.

— Nevada Wind Co., proposes a 4,470-acre project on the North Egan Range. That wind generating developer is monitoring wind at the site. Hanefeld said the BLM expects Nevada Wind to submit an application for a wind generation facility at that site this year.

— Nevada Wind has a right-of-way for wind monitoring and a 4,250-acre project area for the Antelope Range and the South Schell Creek range.

— A 7,680-acre project in North Spring Valley by Spring Valley Wind, which is monitoring wind in that area. Spring Valley Wind has submitted an application and a draft plan to the BLM.

— Two project areas consisting of 4,400 and 4,911 acres by Invenergy in North Spring Valley.

— A 4,528-acre project by Power Partners at the Diamond Range. Power Partners is monitoring wind at the site.

— A 4,536-acre project in the North Egan Range by Enexco. That company is also monitoring wind.

— Two project areas by Boulevard Associates consisting of sites that are 67,771 acres in North Spring Valley and 18,254 in Copper Flat.

The BLM also identified three proposed sites in Lincoln County.

— A 5,220-acre project area on Table Mountain/Mt. Wilson by Nevada Wind. That company is monitoring wind at the site.

— A 2,950-acre project on Atlanta Summit by Nevada Wind.
