December 1, 2009 – Chevron Global Power Company is committed to developing power projects that help meet future energy demand in a clean, safe, secure and environmentally responsible manner.
Chevron's Casper Wind Farm has turned a former refinery site near Casper, Wyoming into an 11 turbine wind power facility. The Casper Wind Farm is expected to produce 16.5 megawatts, or enough renewable, emissions-free electricity to power about 4,400 homes.
The facility is near Casper and Evansville, in Natrona County on the site of the former Texaco Casper Works refinery, which was decommissioned in 1982. Construction of the county's first wind project began in June 2009, with the start up of the facility in December 2009.
The Casper Wind Farm not only provides a sustainable, best use of the property, but also brings the site back into energy production with renewable wind energy.
