BISBEE – Arizona Audubon is appealing a recent decision made by the Cochise County Planning and Zoning Commission on the approval of a special use permit for a wind power generation farm between Willcox and Bowie.
On April 10, the plan commission members heard the request of Red Horse 2, LLC and Torch Renewable Energy, LLC, to build a 28-turbine wind farm located primarily on state trust lands that will produce around 51-megawatts of power on 220 acres.
