Soar Spot: Rawlins hosts second annual Celebration of Wind
May 19, 2010 – Kites, wind energy facts and a lot of fun were on hand May 14-15 as part of CCHEC's second annual Celebration of Wind, held at the Rawlins Recreation Center.
Sponsored in part by Power Company of Wyoming LLC, the event gave citizens opportunities to learn about wind energy, transmission lines, wind employment opportunities and other topics, in addition to enjoying wind-related amusements like radio-controlled helicopters, paper airplanes, dog Frisbee contests and kites. Several hundred adults and children came out to enjoy the day.
Power Company of Wyoming’s exhibit also outlined the environmental and economic benefits of the proposed Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project, including hundreds of short- and long-term jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue expected to come to Carbon County.
