 Wind Energy Task Force Looks At Eminent Domain

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The legislative Task Force on Wind Energy has begun the task of considering potential changes to Wyoming's eminent domain law in dealing with so-called collector systems. Those are the power lines required to connect wind farms to larger transmission lines that connect Wyoming-generated electricity to the western grid. The task force met in Casper on Thursday. It heard from one landowner who stands to earn money from leasing property for wind farms say his immediate and distant neighbors who might only see power lines deserve more than what's currently afforded them through condemnation.
