The recession may have taken the wind out of the sails of some wind energy projects around the nation, but that’s not the case in Wyoming and Montana.

Officials in both states say they have not heard of any wind projects being delayed. If there are projects being delayed, they say there are plenty of others still going forward.

The Anschutz Corp. is going ahead with plans to build 1,000 wind turbines near Rawlins in southern Wyoming as well as a $3 billion power line project to carry the electricity to the southwest United States.

Chantel McCormick of the Montana Department of Commerce’s Energy Promotion and Development Division says her office is tracking more than 50 wind projects in various stages of development.
