Wind farm moving in North of Springdale

An 80-megawatt wind facility is moving in just North of Springdale.

KULR-8’s Luke Laster was at a meeting tonight in Big Timber where people for and against the project were in attendance.

The Crazy Mountain Wind Project is planned to span over both Park and Sweetgrass counties and is expected to entail around 24 wind turbines altogether. Some residents are for the project, and believe it will bring in work for Montana laborers.

Adam Renz, Government Relations Representative for Pattern Development, is one of those hopeful people.

“We’re expecting five to ten full time jobs when the park is in operation and approximately 100 jobs during the peak of construction period.”

Others aren’t so optimistic about the wind farm. Cindy Selensky doesn’t want to see the beautiful lands altered in any way.

“Living here for so often there’s been tons of times you’ll see people parked all along the highway… pulled over taking pictures and people aren’t going to be taking pictures of the mountains with windmills in them anymore.”

Participating landowners in the project will also be receiving royalties throughout the life of the project. The project is in late stage development and is preparing for construction mobilization.
