BLM clears way for Milford wind corridor

MILFORD, UTAH - The federal Bureau of Land Management issued a permit giving a Massachusetts company permission to build 159 power turbines 10 miles northeast of Milford.

As for the project's environmental impact, the BLM said it had received a "finding of no significance," clearing the way for the project's construction, which is expected to start next month.

The Milford wind corridor project would generate 300 megawatts of electric power, which will be transmitted to Southern California and is enough for 247,000 homes.

Plans for First Wind's 262-foot-tall structures set on 40 acres elicited no negative comments from area residents, according to the bureau.
