The proposed Wilson Creek Wind Project would have consisted of up to 350 wind turbines generating up to 990 megawatts of electricity on approximately 31,000 acres of the public lands in the Wilson Creek Range, including Mt. Wilson, Table and White Rock mountains, and Atlanta Summit.


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District, Schell Field Office has rejected an application from Wilson Creek Wind Company, LLC, to develop a wind generation project on public lands about 20 miles northeast of Pioche, in Lincoln County, Nev. 

The proposed Wilson Creek Wind Project would have consisted of up to 350 wind turbines generating up to 990 megawatts of electricity on approximately 31,000 acres of the public lands in the Wilson Creek Range, including Mt. Wilson, Table and White Rock mountains, and Atlanta Summit.

The BLM in late May 2011 announced in the Federal Register that it would prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed project. The announcement began a 60-day public input period that concluded July 27. The BLM released the scoping report four months later. In the report, the public expressed concerns about impacts to wildlife habitat, as well as socio-economics, recreation and visual resources.

The BML confirmed its decision to reject the application in a document that can be accessed by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
