Oregon company gets OK for wind project on Montana land December 1, 2009

Montana officials have approved a 79-megawatt wind power project on private and state-owned land in central Montana.

The Coyote Wind Project, approved Tuesday, will include eight wind turbines that can generate up to 14.4 megawatts of electricity on state land and 36 turbines generating 64.8 megawatts on adjacent private land.

Coyote Wind, LLC, is majority owned Enerfin Energy Company of Portland, with a 5 percent stake held by Alternity Wind Power of South Plainfield, New Jersey. The state Department of Natural Resources and Conservation conducted a competitive bid process in 2005 before awarding wind energy development rights to the company.
