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