BLM rejects wind energy project application  

Credit:  Posted by Wyatt Cox | whitepinenews.blogspot.com 19 June 2012 ~~

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District, Schell Field Office has rejected an application from Wilson Creek Wind Company, LLC, to develop a wind generation project on public lands about 20 miles northeast of Pioche, in Lincoln County, Nev. The project proponent has not provided BLM with the required documents, including an updated Plan of Development.

The proposed Wilson Creek Wind Project would have consisted of up to 350 wind turbines generating up to 990 megawatts of electricity on approximately 31,000 acres of the public lands in the Wilson Creek Range, including Mt. Wilson, Table and White Rock mountains, and Atlanta Summit.

The BLM in late May 2011 announced in the Federal Register that it would prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed project. The announcement began a 60-day public input period that concluded July 27. The BLM released the scoping report four months later. In the report, the public expressed concerns about impacts to wildlife habitat, as well as socio-economics, recreation and visual resources.
