The Sweetwater County Commission has extended a moratorium on wind farms by six months.
The county’s moratorium was set to expire in December, but the extension takes it to the beginning of next summer.
The county enacted the moratorium while it considered enacting wind farm regulations for issues such as noise.
The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports ( http://bit.ly/QGxxKF) that the commission decided to extend the moratorium after it recently heard conflicting testimony from experts on proposed noise regulations.
