Document Description
A proposal to install up to three meteoroligcal towers to evaluate the wind resources on approximately 4,500 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) right of way (ROW). The towers will be used only to evaluate the potential of wind resources at the site for a sufficient amount of tiem in order to determine if the wind resources would support a wind energy project. If the site proves to be sufficient to support a commercial wind project, RES Americas Development Inc. would apply to BLM for long-term commmercial wind energy development. Such a potential commercial project would happen in the future, as a seperate project, and would be evaluated accordingly. The lease with BLM for the current project ROW expires August 2013. It is anticipated that the meteorological project will also end then. If the applicant decides to continue the project, a new lease agreement with BLM must be entered into and will be subject to all pertinent regulations existing at the time of renewal.
