Charlotte, N.C.-based Duke Energy's plan to build a 66-turbine wind power project near Casper, Wyo., remains on schedule to begin construction this spring, thanks to a unanimous vote by a state environmental commission to approve the project's permit.

The Wyoming Industrial Siting Council voted in favor of Duke Energy's application for a permit to build the Campbell Hill Windpower Project. Under the Wyoming Industrial Development Information and Siting Act, permits are required of all projects with construction costs of $178.9 million or more.

The Campbell Hill project is expected to generate 99 MW of renewable energy when it comes online at the end of the year. Duke Energy expects to receive the permit to build the Campbell Hill project from the state in April, after which construction will begin.

PacifiCorp, which operates as Rocky Mountain Power in Wyoming, will purchase all of the power from the project as part of a 20-year agreement that was announced in September 2008.
