The state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council announced it will conduct a public hearing 7 p.m. Aug. 6 at Central Washington University to examine a request to expand the acreage of the Wild Horse Wind Power Project and add 26 wind turbines to the wind farm located 17 miles east of Ellensburg.
The hearing will be in Central’s Student Union & Recreation Building Ballroom.
Owners and operators of the wind farm, Puget Sound Energy, are asking to expand the wind farm site on the north by 1,280 acres. This would expand the wind farm from 8,600 acres to 9,880 acres.
