Conservative billionaire seeks to build 3,000 MW wind farm in Wyo.

Wind Energy SmartBrief | Jun 30, 2015

Billionaire Philip Anschutz, who built his fortune on oil drilling, has a plan to build a 3,000-megawatt wind farm on his 500-square-mile cattle ranch in Wyoming. The project could feature up to 1,000 turbines spanning 20 miles of rocky bluffs on Anschutz's Overland Trail Ranch. If approved, the project would produce four times more electricity than the Hoover Dam. It would cost about $8 billion. The construction phase of the first 500 turbines would take up to two years. "I just look at it as energy, pure and simple. A wind turbine is just an oil well turned upside down," said Bill Miller, head of Anschutz's oil and natural gas business.
