Researchers justify wind farm near Canyonlands

Utah State University researchers say a wind power project near Canyonlands National Park would generate jobs, tax revenue and lease payments for ranchers.

A measuring device left in place for a year near Monticello found that winds blow at an average of nearly 12 mph.

That's enough to justify a wind farm.

Professors Edwin Stafford and Cathy Hartman of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business evaluated the suitability of a modest-sized wind farm near Monticello.

They calculated a 50-megawatt project would support 51 construction and four permanent jobs.

They say the project would pay $150,000 in annual lease payments and $1.3 million in property taxes.

Stafford and Hartman filed the 28-page study in March for the U.S. Department of Energy.
