ConnectGen has announced that the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) has issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving two interconnection requests associated with ConnectGen’s Rail Tie Wind Project, a proposed 504 MW wind energy generation project located in Albany County, Wyoming, USA.
The ROD follows the November 2021 release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and documents the completion of the federal authorization to interconnect the project to the WAPA transmission grid. WAPA’s ROD issuance adds to the roster of major federal, state, and local approvals obtained by the Rail Tie Wind Project. The project previously received a Wind Energy Conversion System permit from the Albany County Board of County Commissioners as well as Section 109 permit approval from the State of Wyoming Industrial Siting Council.
