USBLM denies permit for huge wind farm adjacent to Castle Mountains NMon, wilderness areas

Searchlight, Nevada – Numbers of renewable energy projects in southwestern desert areas have risen dramatically in the past ten years, therefore it came as a surprise on Friday afternoon, November 30, when the BLM announced the agency’s refusal to allow the Crescent Peak Wind Project (CPW) to be built on 32,351 acres of pristine southern Nevada wild lands.
