Rawlins Wind Farm Revived
A wind farm project that originally got a permit from Carbon County 14 years ago but never got developed could be headed for a revival. Terra Moya Aqua Global Wind first obtained a conditional use permit for the Simpson Ridge project in 1999. Carbon County officials say the permit issued back then is still good.
They say another company, Polstream USA, now has acquired the permit from Terra Moya Aqua and is interested in developing the project. One obstacle is that Simpson Ridge is habitat for sage grouse and carries certain restrictions on development. County planning officials say they have asked Polstream to meet with the county Planning and Zoning Commission to discuss their plans.
