Local wind energy proposals withdrawn

Two firms investigating potential wind energy in eastern California have withdrawn their requests to install monitoring towers on public lands. The firms proposed to install 200-foot-tall wind monitoring towers for three-year testing periods to collect wind speed and direction data and other weather information.

The Bureau of Land Management’s Bishop Field Office has approved requests from ENEL (Padoma) and EWind Farms to withdraw their proposed wind energy type II monitoring right-of-way applications for the Adobe Valley and Granite Mountain public land areas. These cases have been closed.

“We appreciate the time and energy spent by people interested in these proposals through written comments, attending public meetings, and participating in the field exam,” said Bernadette Lovato, BLM Bishop Field Office manager.
