A recently released study from London-based transmission and utility firm National Grid suggests wind-generated electricity produced in southern Wyoming is the most viable option for meeting the clean power demands of the desert Southwest. The study is a comprehensive effort to examine renewable energy options for Arizona, Nevada and southern California.

"We now have a major study by National Grid that confirms that Wyoming wind farms are among the best renewable energy options for the American Southwest," said Gov. Dave Freudenthal, D-Wyo., in a statement about the study. "With the Anschutz Corporation, through a subsidiary, taking on the role of developer for the TransWest Express transmission project, we are not just talking about another study on the shelf, but a real project on the ground. Anschutz has a long and successful tradition of resource development in Wyoming. This project will add to that tradition."
