Regulators in Wyoming received the request for approval to install 66 wind turbines at a former coal mine, the Portland Business Journal reported.

The Glenrock Wind Energy Project would be built at the site of Pacific Power’s Dave Johnston Coal Mine and is expected to be able to generate about 99 megawatts.

The coal mine had been in operation for about 40 years until it was shut down in 2000.
