MILFORD (AP) — The developer of Utah's largest commercial wind farm is putting a plan to expand the project on hold for now.
First Wind spokesman John Lamontagne said the company has every reason to believe it can get started soon on 68 more turbines — once it wins a contract to sell the power.
The company announced the expansion in April after the federal government approved it, but the expansion still hasn't started.
Milford Mayor Bryan Sherwood said he's hopeful the project can get under way by August. He said construction crews spend a lot of money in town.
First Wind is selling power from 97 turbines in Utah's west desert to Los Angeles, Burbank and Pasadena, all in California.
