Mon Mar 7 2011, 15:26 PM

The Colusa County Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Canadian company AltaGas' wind farm proposal, which proposes to build between 29 and 42 wind turbines on Walker Ridge in Mendocino National Forest, on the border of Colusa and Lake counties.

The developer expects to start construction in early 2012 and have the 70 MW project online by summer 2012, assuming all permits have been given.

The environmental impact assessment is expected to be available for public review in June 2011.
