PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The Utah Association of Municipal Power Systems says it plans to build a wind farm in Idaho.

The association told the Daily Herald of Provo, Utah that an announcement on final plans for the farm will be made within 90 days.

Association spokeswoman Jackie Coombs says the farm will generate between 40 and 60 megawatts of power. Coombs says the wind farm is part of a larger push from UAMPS to use more renewable energy.

The group has also launched an energy conservation campaign and is considering building a natural-gas-powered generator.

The association provides power to several cities and organizations in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and California.
