CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming for Oil, Gas, Coal, and Agriculture is reminding all residents of Natrona County of the very important meeting of the Natrona County Commissioners on July 6, 2021 at the Natrona County Courthouse at 5:30 p.m. This meeting will hear comments on the application of Anticline Wind LLC for a conditional use permit to build an industrial wind project on both sides of I-25 in the area of 20 Mile Hill North of Casper.

The proposed plan includes 52 wind turbines, 550 feet tall each, and would irreversibly change the very nature and character of Natrona County.  Contrary to the beliefs of some residents, power produced by this industrial project would not be used in Natrona County. It would be added to the electrical grid and sent to other states.

“Wyoming for Oil, Gas, Coal, and Agriculture is comprised of members who are resident citizens of Natrona County with lifelong involvement in the fossil fuel and agriculture industries that have been the major support and ‘backbone’ of our precious Western way of life,” said Christine Jarrard, representative of Wyoming for Oil, Gas, Coal, and Agriculture.

“The loss of our ‘wide open plains’ and scenic beauty is just one of the problems with these wind projects. Our livelihoods in the fossil fuel industry and agriculture are threatened by these highly subsidized companies who have no roots in our communities and leave division and destruction in their wake.”

On June 29th, the Conditional Use Permit was denied by the Natrona County Planning and Zoning Commission with a vote of 4 to 1.  However, the Natrona County Commissioners are free to make a decision contrary to that advisory board’s recommendation.

“We are asking the people of Natrona County to do their research. Learn the truth about these wind projects and then come to the meeting of the Natrona County Commissioners to make their voices heard.”
