Description:

"On October 1, 2010 the $260 million Dunlap I wind project in Carbon County, Wyoming near the town of Medicine Bow began producing electricity from the 74 wind turbines that have been installed. The electricity that is produced from the project will be available for use by customers in six states of the United States.
The Dunlap wind farm GE SLE wind turbines have a maximum capacity of 1.5MW each and this gives the project a total generating capacity of 111MW. This means that it is capable of producing enough electricity to power around 32,000 homes each year.
8 to 10 employees will maintain the wind towers on a full-time basis.
A second phase of the project is planned to increase the capacity of the project to 300MW, adding a further 126 wind turbines for a total of 200 towers.
Construction of the plant was carried out by RES Americas..."
