BP Wind Energy proposed a wind farm project in 2009 on Federal lands managed by the BLM and the Bureau of Reclamation. The proposal was to erect up to 283 wind turbines that would generate up to 500 megawatts of electricity. The site is in Mohave County, Arizona, about 40 miles northwest of Kingman. The proposal was for 38,099 acres of BLM land and 8,960 acres of Reclamation land.
On May 17, 2013, the BLM announced the release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) for the project. The Final EIS identifies the preferred alternative, which is for 35,329 acres on BLM land and 2,781 acres on Bureau of Reclamation land. The BLM considered BP Wind's proposal, three alternatives and the no-action alternative. The preferred alternative was developed by considering impacts to resources and comments from the public and cooperating agencies.
