What is the Echo Divide Wind Park?
The Echo Divide Wind Park is a proposed wind generating facility that will be located along the Utah-Wyoming border south and east of Interstate Highway 80 (I-80) in eastern Summit County, Utah, approximately 7 miles southwest of Evanston, Wyoming. The project will use approximately 39 turbines to generate up to 100MW of electricity, which is capable of powering the equivalent of approximately 21,730 Summit County homes per year.
Enyo Renewable Energy is working with landowners, Summit County, Uinta County, and their respective citizen boards throughout this process. Completion of the Echo Divide Wind Park will help Summit County reach their energy goals by the year 2030. Additionally, the Echo Divide Wind Park will generate property tax revenue for Summit County taxing entities. The benefiting entities include the schools, hospital, recreation services and the library system among others. For Uinta County, this project will also create construction jobs, boost the lodging industry, and bring other sources of revenue to local businesses.

A Letter From Echo Divide Wind Park
By Christine Mikell of Enyo Renewable Energy
Over the past 15 years, myself and the team at Enyo Renewable Energy have forged a path to sustainability across the Intermountain West. Through successful collaboration between policy makers, utilities, landowners, business stakeholders and civic leaders, we have established a foundation for leadership in developing renewable energy solutions.
Now, we are pleased to announce we are building upon that foundation. We have proposed the building of the Echo Divide Wind Park, which has the potential to deliver clean, homegrown energy for years to come.
Wind energy development is not just about clean air, clean water, and unlimited energy – it’s about stimulating rural economies and making a difference in the lives of rural landowners and rural communities. It’s these positive human benefits and the environmental advantages for the use of renewable energy that are the most rewarding aspects of working in the wind energy industry. We look forward to keeping you apprised of our progress and welcome your feedback.
