China Mountain Wind Farm Delayed

There’s probably going to be at least a two year delay in any decision to build a huge wind farm in southwest Twin Falls County.  The Times News reports that the proposed China Mountain wind farm project is being put on hold for now so the BLM can formulate a plan that will protect the endangered sage grouse critical habitat.  The China Mountain project would encompass over 25,000 acres of public land with 170 wind turbines. The BLM now has three years to improve its sage grouse conservation efforts and also prove it can sustain the bird’s habitat. One way the agency plans to do this in Idaho is by taking the next two years to finish amending its management plan for the Jarbidge, NV. area where the China Mountain project is located.
