Internal Department popular target for renewable energy on public lands

Sunday, October 28, 2012
The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) announced on October 10 that the Department of the President objective achieved authorizing 10,000 megawatts of renewable energy on public land. DOI met the milestone with his assertion that the site chokecherry and Sierra Madre wind energy project in Southeastern Wyoming suitable for wind energy development. The project is a proposed complex that could generate up to 3,000 megawatts of power. Developers expect the proposal and create an estimated 1,000 construction, operation and maintenance jobs, where Summit construction, employs 114 permanent workers and makes enough energy to generate almost 1 million apartments.

The Commission approved the Bureau of land management, to continue for the Sierra Madre and chokecherry wind farms and infrastructure with site-specific environmental analysis. Additional environmental reviews will be needed for the turbine layouts. The proposed project would comprises two sites to exist to 1,000 wind turbines on approximately 219.707 hectares land about 10 miles south of Rawlins. It is developed in phases and are operated by power company of Wyoming LLC. If constructed, the wind, which have complex should a footprint of less than 2,000 hectares.

Since 2009 DOI has solar authorized 33 renewable energy projects, including 18 utility-scale facilities, seven wind parks and eight geothermal plants with associated transmission corridors and infrastructure projects to make a connection enabling it with established power grids. If built, represents more than 10,000 megawatts this projects electricity or enough electricity, makes available more than 3.5 million homes. You support would also an estimated 13,000 construction and operation according to project developer jobs. See press release DOI.
