Wyoming Ski Resort Commits to Wind Power
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in northwest Wyoming will use renewable energy to power its lifts and other operations.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported that resort officials announced that they would enter Lower Valley Energy's Green Power program for customers and begin drawing energy from the Horse Butte Wind Farm near Idaho Falls, Idaho.
Phil Cameron of Jackson-based Energy Conservation Works says Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is one of only a handful of ski resorts around the country to fully move to renewable energy.
Over the last two years hundreds of businesses and residents of Teton County have converted to green power. Among them are Snow King Mountain Resort and Jackson Hole Airport.
