Wyoming Infrastructure Authority
Let us introduce the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority (WIA) – a quasi-governmental organization created by the State of Wyoming in 2004 “to diversify and expand the state’s economy through improvements in Wyoming’s electric transmission infrastructure” in providing Wyoming energy in the form of wind, natural gas, coal and nuclear power. The Authority can participate in planning, financing, constructing, developing, acquiring, maintaining and operating electric transmission facilities and their supporting infrastructure.
WIA provides quarterly “stakeholder outreach meetings” for those wanting to know more about the issues and the work being done with regard to energy infrastructure in Wyoming, holding each meeting in a different community so as to reach more interested persons.
The next quarterly stakeholder outreach meeting is here in Sheridan, next Tuesday, June 24, 8:00-10:30 am, in the Watt Ag Center on the Sheridan College campus. You’re all invited to attend – it’s a great opportunity to learn more about energy resource development in Wyoming, for use in Wyoming. Click here for more information about the meeting, including the location and agenda. There’s no cost to attend, but they would appreciate an RSVP to know you are coming – just email firstname.lastname@example.org. (To learn more about WIA, you can also visit www.wyia.org.)
This stakeholder outreach meeting in Sheridan is being held in cooperation with the UW School of Energy Resources, Sheridan County Chamber, Forward Sheridan, and the Sheridan County Board of Commissioners.
