Wed, 05/14/2014 - 3:17pm

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- The developers of what could become the largest wind energy project in the U.S. have submitted their application for a state permit in Wyoming to build the wind farm.

The Power Company of Wyoming submitted its industrial siting permit application on Tuesday for its proposed Chokecherry/Sierra Madre wind farm south of Rawlins.

The Power Company is a wholly owned affiliate of Denver billionaire Phil Anschutz's The Anschutz Corp.

It proposes to install 1,000 turbines that would generate enough electricity to power 1 million homes.

The state Industrial Siting Council will hold a hearing on the application within 90 days. It then has another 45 days to issue a decision on whether to approve the application.

The project also is seeking various federal permits.
