NOTE: Originally, Wasatch planned for 2 phases of 49.6 MW each. Pioneer Wind Park I (PWP I) was a proposed 49.6 MW project to consist of 31 GE 1.6 MW XLE turbines.
Pioneer Wind Park II (PWP II), also 49.6 MW, was located just to the south. These phases were sold to sPower and combined into a single 80 MW project. After this development, this project (PWP I) was updated and the second phase project (PWP II) was removed from the project list.
