October 25 (Renewables Now) - Wyoming’s Albany County has scheduled a public hearing in December for Chicago-based Invenergy LLC’s up to 590-MW Rock Creek wind farm project, local newspaper Wyoming Business Report writes.

Albany County Commissioners have deemed the project application complete as the developer has filed all needed application documents, including a draft socioeconomic study. The proposal is now open for public comments and a public hearing event is due to be held on December 7.

Invenergy is planning to install the 106-turbine wind park in the state’s Albany and Carbon counties, a large portion of which will be located in Albany County. Around 450 temporary jobs are planned to be created during the construction phase.

Previously, the sustainable energy developer said that Rock Creek’s construction could begin as early as 2023 and be completed by end-2024. The capacity will be installed in two phases. Once operational, the plant will be capable of producing enough electricity to supply roughly 675,000 average homes.

Invenergy is the developer of the 250-MW Ekola Flats and 500-MW TB Flats in Wyoming’s Carbon County. Their ownership was transferred to Berkshire Hathaway Energy’s PacifiCorp in 2019.
