“The planned Cat Creek Energy wind farm on Camas Prairie is a bad idea!” – Chris Stephens from the S Bar Ranch
The video below was taken on May 19, 2018, at 1:30 pm near the intersection of Cat Creek Road and Bennett Mountain Road in Elmore County, Idaho. The location gives a spectacular view of the Camas Prairie and the snowcapped Soldier Mountains in the distance. With Cat Creek Energy, LLC’s plan to construct between 30 and 40 wind turbines within the viewshed of this video, it’s easy to understand why we think the Elmore County Commissioners should put an end to this project.
The Video & Where Was It Taken?
The video is geotagged at 43.288762, -115.317848.

A total of eight or nine wind towers as tall as a 50 story skyscraper will be located within one mile of the video location unless we can convince Elmore County officials and the Cat Creek Energy leadership that a wind farm does not belong on Camas Prairie.

Take a drive up to the western portions of Camas Prairie and see for yourself the beauty of this area.
Contact the Elmore County Commissioners, Wes Wootan, Bud Corbus and Al Hofer and explain to them a wind farm in that planned location is a bad idea. The contact information for the commissioners can be found on the county website at http://www.elmorecounty.org/Commissioners/PDFs/default.html
