CHEYENNE, Wyo. - The Wyoming Supreme Court has upheld permits issued by the state and Converse County allowing construction of two wind farms in the Laramie Range.

Wasatch Wind of Salt Lake City plans to construct 62 towers at two locations. The Northern Laramie Range Alliance had challenged permits issued to the company by the Converse County Board of County Commissioners and Wyoming Industrial Siting Council.

A statement from the Northern Laramie Range Alliance says it still intends try to block construction of the wind farms.

Wasatch Wind President Christine Watson Mikell says the company is pleased with the court's decision.
