PacificCorp, the second-largest rate-regulated utility owner of wind-powered generation resources, has recently added 111 MW of wind-generated power in Wyoming with the Dunlap I wind farm, located in Carbon County, Wyo., near the town of Medicine Bow.
The company, which serves 1.7 million electric customers, operates as Rocky Mountain Power in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho, and as Pacific Power in Oregon, Washington and northern California.
In Wyoming, PacifiCorp owns nine operating wind projects: Foote Creek I, Seven Mile Hill, Seven Mile Hill II, Glenrock, Rolling Hills, Glenrock III, High Plains, McFadden Ridge I and Dunlap I. Also in Wyoming, the company purchases 100% of the output of six operating wind projects owned by others.
Together, PacifiCorp and its sister utility, MidAmerican Energy, own wind resources with a combined generating capability of 2,316 MW – topping the list of all U.S. rate-regulated utility owners of wind generation.
