BLM approved construction for the first 500 windmills of the Anscultz project in Wyoming, which I think is great. 500 more will come later. The plan is to generate 3 gigawatts of power and sell it to Los Angelos to power 1 million homes. (Home use is only about 10% of the total; most electricity is used by industry.) The windmills will be [artly on BLM land, partly on Anschutz's ranch. $6 billion project was held up for years by red tape. This is posted to my election law blog because I see this as a consequence of Trump's election.
