Wyoming Companies Say…

What wind energy companies are saying

What Wind Energy Companies Are Saying…


  • Best on-shore wind resource in the country

  • When transmission lines are built, great access to markets

  • Large potential for industry

  • Less expensive land

  • Excellent quality of life for the right employees

  • Much lower cost of living when trying to attract workers

What wind energy companies are saying1

What Wind Energy Companies Are Saying…


  • First state to tax wind generation

  • Only state with three taxes on wind energy industry: 1) Property tax, 2) Sales tax, 3) Production tax

  • Some companies are looking to move from state next year possibly due to taxes

  • Longer distance to major markets adds costs, so tax structure needs to be even more competitive, not less

  • Negative perception of industry within Wyoming

  • No Renewable Energy Standard (RES)

  • Lack of support for industry at the state government level

  • Sage grouse issue

  • Lack of corporate income tax isn’t a benefit; most companies won’t make a profit for years

  • Although it is an energy resource, it is treated as a political issue, not a commodity

But one thing really sets wyoming apart

But One Thing Really Sets Wyoming Apart…
