Idaho wind farm may be built, despite planning denial

BLACKFOOT, Idaho (AP) – A proposed wind farm in southeastern Idaho may be built, after all, despite being denied by a planning and zoning panel last month.

The Bingham County Commission overruled the initial decision on Tuesday and approved Blue Ribbon Energy’s plan to install 27 wind turbines near the Goshen townsite.

In November, the Bingham County Planning and Zoning Commission had turned down the application, on grounds the turbines would have been too close to homes.

There’s still about a month for foes of the project to appeal this latest decision, so it’s not assured if it will actually advance.

Arron Jepson, an owner of Blue Ribbon Energy, was elated over the turn of events.

Blue Ribbon had already scaled back its proposal from 50 turbines to just 27, to address community concerns.
