The Bingham County Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC) has approved a special-use permit for the Goshen South wind farm. The permit gives Ridgeline Energy approval to build 150 wind turbines on leased land in Bingham County, Idaho. The wind farm will have the capability to generate up to 450 MW of electricity.

According to Ridgeline, the project will rely primarily on improving existing public and farm roads to meet the wind farm's needs for road access.

"We love this area and want to see it maintain its rural character," says landowner Kelly Bingham. "The wind farm will help us hold onto our land and keep it available for farming, ranching, recreation and wildlife habitat."

Construction of the wind farm could begin in 2009 and will require more than 200 workers, according to the company.
