New Map, New ProjectROA_boundary_map_streets.png

Roaming Bison Wind has changed. While we know that there are hundreds of people who support the project as it is, we also recognize that the rules in the County have changed, and so we need to change as well. This is a good thing.

To this end, we have identified a new, much smaller and more defined project area in the northwestern corner of the County. We believe that this change can positively address a number of concerns:

  • People in the county will know exactly where we propose to develop the project
  • The project’s footprint will be much smaller, with fewer proposed turbines
  • With zoning in place, the county now has the opportunity to host a wind farm on its terms, and it will be up to us to meet those terms within our new area
  • Landowners, the county, and utilities within the state can all still benefit from a project that allows landowners who want to participate to exercise their property rights, while aligning with broader county development goal

This website, and the progress we are making on land leasing, will be continuously updated. 

Together, we can create a better Montgomery County for all. Don’t just take our word for it; hear from those who already have wind in their community:

PROJECT SUMMARY

  • Project size: Up to 300 MW
  • Enough energy to power up to 80,000 U.S. homes
  • Turbines will be spaced approximately 1/4 mile apart
  • Existing high-voltage power lines and highways would limit the need for new infrastructure
  • Roughly 150 local construction-related jobs and significant local spending during construction
  • Approximately 15 full-time jobs created for operations and maintenance
