The Power Company of Wyoming (PCW) reports that field work for the proposed Chokecherry and Sierra Madre wind energy project is well under way.

Following the release of the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision last year, PCW is now preparing its site-specific plans for the wind project’s construction, including working to microsite up to 1,000 wind turbines within the areas approved for wind energy development.

Located on a roughly 50/50 combination of alternating private land and federal land, the 2,000 MW - 3,000 MW wind farm was proposed in 2008 by PCW on portions of a 320,000-acre working cattle ranch privately owned and operated by The Overland Trail Cattle Co. LLC.

All plans will be reviewed by BLM to ensure they comply with the project-wide analysis described in the record of decision.
