CASPER, Wyo. (AP) A request has been approved to extend the construction schedule of Wyoming's largest wind farm project.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Carbon County commissioners on July 2 OK'd the new schedule for the Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project as it works through federal, state and county permits, as well as environmental requirements.

The approved schedule change extends the construction period from eight to 11 years with a completion goal of 2026. Company officials said they needed the construction schedule changed to account for market demands, workforce schedules and material availability.

When completed, the wind farm south of Rawlins is expected to provide 2,500 to 3,000 megawatts of energy, doubling the state's wind energy production. A transmission line will then feed power to California consumers.
