Major wind power proposal has Idaho producers concerned

A major wind power proposal is concerning farmers and ranchers in Idaho. The Lava Ridge Project is coming to the south-central portion of the state.

Producers are concerned about loss of grazing land, more traffic, and less water availability.
It would be one of the biggest projects in the nation and take up a lot of lands, 73,000 acres.

The plan calls for 400 wind turbines, seven substations, a battery system, as well as collection and transmission infrastructure.
