Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project

South-central Wyoming has the best, highest-capacity wind resources in the United States. The Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project is a proposed 1,000-turbine wind farm to be located in Carbon County. With the potential to generate up to 3,000 megawatts of electricity, the project will supply cost-effective renewable energy to help meet the electrical demand from Desert Southwest states with Renewable Portfolio Standards. At the same time, the wind power plant will generate hundreds of good jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue for Carbon County and Wyoming.
