The Power County Commission has approved an ordinance that helps clear the way for wind power developers.

The new ordinance requires that each turbine be issued a building permit and a single use permit is required for the entire project. The Idaho State Journal reports the new ordinance comes in response to a pair of wind power projects being considered for the rural Eastern Idaho county.

One company, Ridgeline Energy, has applied for permits to build a 66-turbine wind farm across 900 acres of land between American Falls and Rockland.
