Boston-based First Wind, an independent wind power company, has received a finding of no significance permit and a record of decision permit from the U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approving its 300 MW Milford Wind Corridor project in Utah.
BLM has conducted a national environmental policy act environmental assessment for the facility and issued the finding with the decision to approve the project. Milford Wind Corridor is the first wind energy facility permitted under the BLM's Wind Energy Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the western U.S.
‘Renewable energy resources are playing an increasingly larger role in meeting our nation's growing energy demands, and BLM is committed to identifying and developing renewable energy zones in Utah,’ says Todd Christensen, BLM Utah Color Country district manager.
