LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Rocky Mountain Power is beginning the installation of 19 wind turbines at a new wind farm in Albany County.

The Salt Lake City-based company says the first phase of the McFadden Ridge project will generate a combined 28.5 megawatts of electricity. It's scheduled for completion by late 2009.

McFadden Ridge I is near the towns of McFadden and Rock River.

The new project is also near Rocky Mountain Power's 66-turbine High Plains wind project. The company says construction of the High Plains project is under way and scheduled for completion by this fall.

McFadden Ridge is Rocky Mountain Power's seventh Wyoming wind project in the past two years.
