“Today the Washington Supreme Court upheld the state’s long standing procedural process for the siting of energy facilities. This decision is a victory for the generation of alternative energy in our state, for job creation and for economic growth. The 65 wind turbines planned by the Kittitas Valley Wind Power Project will power tens of thousands of homes while preventing more than a half million tons of carbon dioxide per year from being released into the atmosphere. The construction of this wind-power plant will create jobs just when our economy so desperately needs them. And long term, this project will generate significant annual property tax revenue for Kittitas County.
