Rocky Mountain Power is asking regulators in three states to approve an initial plan to significantly expand the amount of wind power serving customers by 2020.

Regulatory filings in Wyoming, Utah and Idaho seek to advance the company’s Energy Vision 2020 initiative. The plan would:

  • Upgrade or “repower” the company’s existing wind fleet with longer blades and newer technology
  • Add approximately 1,100MW of new wind
  • Build a new 140-mile Gateway West transmission segment

By moving to complete the projects by 2020, the company will be able to use federal production tax credits.
