CHEYENNE – Wyoming’s wind energy capacity is set to double in the coming years, as developments of various sizes spring up throughout the state.

Rocky Mountain Power is developing four wind farms in Wyoming to be finished by 2021, and progress continues on the $5 billion Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy projects in Carbon County. Chokecherry is expected to raise about $850 million in state tax revenues once completed.
