Wyoming has abundant wind power potential and several companies or individuals are interested in developing wind farms and associated infrastructure in the WLCI area. A few wind developments are already in place. Developers must go through a permitting process with the State of Wyoming and must receive approval from landowners, whether private or public. The WLCI supports scientific studies to learn more about potential impacts of wind power and is interested in how wind development will affect wildlife and other natural resources. The WLCI also promotes use of best available science in determining where and how to situate wind development facilities.
