Wyoming is the largest exporter of energy in the United States and ranks first in terms of land-based class 6 and 7 wind sites. This site is a tool to provide information about wind energy, Wyoming's wind energy potential and associated industry, and a source for news and updates.
Wind farms go through a multi-level permitting process to ensure that environmental standards, climate and land use concerns, and reclamation requirements are met.
Depending on the project site, development teams may have to go through local, state, and federal permitting steps.
The State of Wyoming created the Natural Resources and Energy Exploration tool to help project teams assess the energy, environmental, cultural, socioeconomic and infrastructural assets of a potential site.
Stay tuned for upcoming events, meetings, and opportunities to get involved!
Wind Wyoming is a public outreach initiative. We work to promote opportunities for public engagement, increase knowledge on wind energy facts and how they relate to Wyoming, and build a network of wind energy advocates.
