“Construction of a 150-turbine wind farm on 20,000 acres along Wolverine Canyon [Blackfoot Mountains] has been approved by Bingham County commissioners.”
The turbines would be 490 feet tall!! I wonder if there are any taller ones anywhere?
This project is remaking some traditional political alliances in the area. Leading the charge against the farm is Frank VanderSloot, owner of Melaleuca Inc. He is a major Eastern Idaho Republican influential and a landowner in the area
