Utah power agency looks to wind energy

UTAH - An agency that provides electricity to locations in four western states, including Wyoming, plans to build a wind farm in Idaho.

The Utah Association of Municipal Power Systems says an announcement on final plans for the farm will be made within 90 days. Association spokeswoman Jackie Coombs told the Daily Herald of Provo, Utah that the farm will generate between 40 and 60 megawatts of power.

Coombs says the wind farm is part of a larger push by the group to use more renewable energy.

The group has also launched an energy conservation campaign and is considering building a natural-gas-powered generator.

The association provides power to several cities and organizations in Utah, Idaho and California as well as Wyoming.
