CASPER, Wyo. (AP) Power Company of Wyoming has moved a step closer to clearing a final environmental requirement for its massive Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project in Carbon County.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that the Bureau of Land Management recently released the third environmental assessment of the wind farm for public comment.

The agency concluded in its study that the planned wind farm will have no new significant impacts on the "human environment" beyond what is outlined in a 2012 environmental impact statement.

Power Company of Wyoming first began applying for state and federal permissions in 2008.

Company spokeswoman Kara Choquette says the latest study will complete the BLM federal environmental analysis of the project.
