Public Notice: Public Notice Review of Request to Amend Cedar Springs Wind III, LLC’s Permit DEQ/ISC 19-02 Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Wyoming Industrial Siting Council

Notice is hereby given that the Industrial Siting Division received an amendment request on April 17, 2020, from Cedar Springs Wind III, LLC (Permittee) regarding the Cedar Springs Wind III Project in Converse County Wyoming.  The Permittee is requesting a change in scope, peak labor force, and daily workforce schedule for the captioned permit.  The change in scope is an increase in capacity from 120 MW to 133 MW due to an increase in turbine output from 2.52 to 2.82. The schedule has changed from commencing construction in Q4 2019 to commencing construction in Q2 2020. The change in schedule has created an increase in the labor force; however, the increase is within 15% of the maximum peak.  The permittee also requests a change in daily work schedule from 6 AM to 6 PM Monday through Saturday to work crews working 24 hours a day. The information submitted included an explanation for this request and an updated labor force projection for the project.  The Permittee is seeking approval of amendment requested for this project.   

 

Pursuant to Permit Condition #11, the Administrator is providing public notice of the requested amendment to permit DEQ/ISC 19-02.   It is the Director’s intention to authorize the change on or about May 15, 2020.  The public may review a copy of the proposed amendments at the Office of the Industrial Siting Division in Cheyenne, Wyoming or online at:
