Seven Mile Wind Farm

United States

#1 Dec 1, 2007
The first I've heard of the Seven Mile Wind Farm was in yesterday's Rawlins paper. With all the proposed activity near Hanna, ie the wind farm, coal mines reopening, and the gasification plant, I'm wondering if Hanna is ready for this- especially if towns like Laramie are getting the lions share of the monies allotted for impact studies, etc. We currently have one police officer on duty. Hanna is set to boom, but is it ready?
word has it

Pacificorp is or will be starting construction on their third new wind project in our area. They did ok during the construction of 7 Mile but very poor for High Plains as far as the hiring of local people is concerned. Their contractor for 7 mile (Tetra Tech), did a good job of hiring subcontractors that would use local talent and provide jobs. At High Plains their contractor (Res Construction) did a very poor job of hiring local companies as a matter of fact most of their subcontractors were union companies and used union people from out of state. We as a community neeed to get the word out that this may be legal but is unnacceptable. Our county has too many people unemployed to give up local opportunites to out of state interests. Call your local newspapers and let them know they need to look into this and give Pacificorp a little bit of akward press coverage if they are not going to do the right thing. Lets look at the conditions of the permits that have been granted and see if our leadership has demanded that local people are provided jobs. NO MORE UNION COMPANIES bringing in out of work people from other states until we have jobs for our own.

Still Not Hiring

The road crew has begun on the roads and they have not hired many, if any locals. People should be talking to the Industrial Siting Committee about this. You have to apply to speak at the hearings when they come up. It's too late to speak at Dunlap's, since it has already passed, but you can talk to the ISC and tell them they are not hiring locals. Go to the state website and get the contact info.

Does anybody know any local people that worked on the High Plains wind site? I have read the application for the industrial sitting permit and Pacificorp stated locals would be hired through the local employment agency. Dunlaps permit says the same thing and estimated about 40 jobs for local people.
