Crossing Trails

Project Overview

Crossing Trails will be located 20 miles south of Seibert, Colorado, on the border of Kit Carson and Cheyenne Counties. The project is sited on a combination of pasture and wheat fields and will provide landowners with a stable, weather-resistant cash crop through lease payments with minimal impact on current land-use.

Benefits

Community

Crossing Trails Wind Farm will yield significant economic benefits to the community in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment.

Crossing Trails represents a capital investment of approximately $145 million and will disperse an estimated $12 million in property tax payments to local governments and school districts over the life of the project. The project will create hundreds of full-time equivalent jobs during construction as well as 6 to 10 permanent jobs. Through the project’s lifecycle, millions of dollars will be spent within 50 miles of the wind farm.

Environment

Crossing Trails Wind Farm will save more than 184 million gallons of water each year and will displace carbon emissions from fossil fuel power plants, a major contributor to climate change. Wind energy also enhances air quality by helping to mitigate the health effects of harmful air pollutants.

Environment

Landowners

Crossing Trails Wind Farm will be compatible with other land uses and will provide a stable form of income to local landowners. Approximately $20 million dollars will be paid to the wind farm’s landowners through the life of the project. These supportive landowners participate in long-term lease and easement agreements to host turbines, access roads, and transmission corridors.

Technology

Turbines

Modern wind turbine generators are sophisticated, high-tech machines designed to capture the kinetic energy of the wind and convert it into electricity. A turbine’s blades capture the wind and rotate an internal shaft connected to a gearbox spinning a generator to produce electricity.

Crossing Trails Wind Farm will consist of 20 Vestas V150 4.3 MW wind turbines and five Vestas V136 3.6 MW wind turbines.
