They are keeping tight lipped about the situation for political reasons.Wow. What makes the turbines need to be replaced, aside from the American necessity to throw away stuff & get new stuff?
WY has been slatted for 3,000MW of new wind generation over the next 8 years.
Its near impossible to get new transmission lines installed with all the environmental impact studies/permits that take years and even decades, so they are replacing old turbines with new larger capacity turbines.
To prevent abandoned and decaying wind farms, Wyoming laws require companies provide bonds to cover the cost of decommissioning and disposal of turbines once they are taken out of service or abandoned, or the old turbines removal was figured into the cost of the new turbine install paid for by you and I.
