Wasatch Wind Proposes Utah Development

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Wasatch Wind chose the community angle to start a discussion about their proposal for Utah’s first wind energy development in Spanish Fork. The company met with people from Spanish Fork at the local fairgrounds, and presented a plan for nine wind turbines to be installed on privately owned land within the city limits. The Spanish Fork Community Wind Farm proposal is expected to bring $13 million of investment to the city, as well as jobs to build and maintain the facility. Wasatch is trying to assure people that current wind turbine technology isn’t as loud and critics claim, turbines don’t reduce property values and they are not a dangerous threat to birds. Spanish Fork is blessed with one of the best wind resources in the country, according to Wasatch. Utah has been slow to recognize wind power’s economic and environment benefits, and the company said it is eager to bring the state into the wind energy market.
