Big Wind Energy Project Proposed In Nevada

Sierra Pacific Resources and Renewable Energy Systems Americas say they're working on an agreement to jointly develop and operate a large wind-energy project in northeastern Nevada and southern Idaho.

Located on a mix of federal, state and private lands, the proposed China Mountain project could generate more than 200 megawatts of electricity.

The project would use state-of-the-art, large-scale wind turbines to produce electricity going into Sierra Pacific Resources' power grid.

The agreement between Nevada-based Sierra Pacific and RES Americas, part of the Britain-based Sir Roger McAlpine Group, would
be subject to approval by the state Public Utilities Commission.
