Obama prioritizes wind projects in California, Vermont

EcoSeed - Oct 12

The Obama administration will fast-track 14 infrastructure projects across the country as part of its efforts to improve the efficiency of federal reviews. Included in the scheme are two wind projects - the 52-wind turbine Cleghorn Ridge Wind Project in the San Bernardino National Forest in California and the 15 2-MW turbine Deerfield Wind Power Project in the towns of Searsburg and Readsboro in Vermont. U.S regulators will complete the review of the Cleghorn wind project in 18 months instead of three years.
