Opponents of Glenrock wind farms to sue Wyoming Industrial Siting Council

A landowner group opposed to two wind farms planned for south of Glenrock will take the state board that approved the wind energy project permit to court.

The Industrial Siting Council, a state board which must sign off on large wind energy projects, approved the farms known together as the Pioneer Wind Project by a 4-3 vote Monday.

Wasatch Wind of Park City, Utah, is the developer of the 62-turbine, 100-megawatt project planned for two sites along Mormon Canyon Road.

The Northern Laramie Range Alliance, a vocal group of nearby landowners and others opposed to the project, announced its lawsuit plans today.

“We are disappointed with the decision of the Industrial Siting Council, as we believe Wasatch Wind did not meet the statuatory requirements, and we look forward to judicial review of the decision,” the alliance said in a media release.
