Whither renewable power after wind farm rejected?

The Bureau of Land Management has rejected a bid by a Swedish firm to construct a mammoth wind turbine project on the Nevada side of the border with California near Searchlight. The Crescent Peak Wind Project was to have covered 32,000 acres of public land with as many as 220 wind turbines standing 400 to 600 feet tall and generating 500 megawatts of power. The proposed site is adjacent to the Mojave National Preserve and the Castle Mountain National Monument . . . Complete story »

Freedom of Information Act document reveals who shut down massive wind farm in southern Nevada

One week ago, Friday, November 30, when it was announced to the press that the Nevada BLM had terminated a proposed industrial wind turbine project that would have sprawled 22 miles on 32,351 acres of mostly virgin public lands, the decision sparked a mystery. Earlier Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents suggested the BLM was working with Crescent Peak Renewables, LLC (a subsidiary of Eolus Vind of Sweden), in an attempt to expedite the approval of the project, which meant . . .

BLM shoots down massive wind farm proposal in southern Nevada

Searchlight, Nevada – Numbers of renewable energy projects in southwestern desert areas have risen dramatically in the past ten years, therefore it came as a surprise on Friday afternoon, November 30, when the BLM announced the agency’s refusal to allow the Crescent Peak Wind Project (CPW) to be built on 32,351 acres of pristine southern Nevada wild lands. With North American headquarters in Reno, Eolus Vind is a Swedish wind farm developer who had earlier announced to the township of . . . Complete story »

BLM rejects massive wind farm along California-Nevada border

Federal regulators have knocked the wind out of another renewable energy project planned for the desert west of Searchlight. The Bureau of Land Management has decided to reject a Sweden-based energy company’s application to build more than 200 turbines, each the height of a skyscraper, along a 22-mile stretch of the Nevada-California border. The project would have covered more than 32,500 acres of public land adjacent to two wilderness areas in Nevada and the Mojave National Preserve and Castle Mountains . . . Complete story »

Nevada’s mines could hold key to meeting Question 6 energy standard

Nevada could meet the new clean energy benchmark approved by voters Tuesday without tearing up any undisturbed land, according to an analysis by The Nature Conservancy and the Rocky Mountain Institute. The Silver State is home to more than enough old mines and other former industrial sites to accommodate the new solar, wind and geothermal plants that will be needed if Nevada electricity providers are eventually required get at least 50 percent of their power from renewable sources, the analysis . . .

Ariz. renewable measure fails as Nev. sees split decision

Voters in Arizona trounced a proposal to require more renewable energy yesterday, while Nevadans backed a similar measure but easily defeated a plan to usher in retail electric choice. The results capped months of campaigning that saw tens of millions of dollars pour in from utility and clean energy interests. The mixed outcome offers a window into the priorities of Western voters as they weigh different forms of energy and the role of mandates and competition. Opponents of Arizona’s renewable . . .

Question 6 opposed by informed conservationists

Nevada’s goal of achieving 50 percent of electricity from renewables, according to recent Harvard engineering estimates, requires 16.65 percent of the state’s landmass (18,409 square miles) to be covered by solar/wind turbine facilities, which equals every square foot of Clark, Washoe, Douglas, Storey and Lyon counties, plus Carson City region and all major towns in other counties combined. Pro Question 6 propaganda states, “Thirteen states, including Colorado and Oregon, have renewable energy standards stronger than Nevada’s …” Notice the omission . . . Complete story »

Wind power and warming

Two papers published Oct. 4 in the journals Joule and Environmental Research Letters by Harvard University researchers find that the transition to wind or solar power would require five to 20 times more land then previously thought and, if such large wind farms were built, it would warm average surface temperatures in the continental United States by 0.4 degrees. Question 6 locks us into 50 percent reliance on energy sources that create this dubious environmental impact. We don’t know what . . . Complete story »

Wind energy developer eyeing Nevada, backs Question 6

Carson City – Nevada is famous for its solar and geothermal energy resources, but there is only one grid-scale wind farm operating in the state, the Spring Valley Wind facility located on public land roughly 30 miles east of Ely. Pattern Energy developed the Spring Valley facility in 2012, and now Eolus North America is variously scoping 2 new wind power projects in Nevada, one near Searchlight and the other near Carson City. Eolus Wind is a leading wind power . . . Complete story »
