Carbon County, Wyo., might seem an unlikely site for the United States' largest future renewable energy project. Since the county's founding in the mid-1800s, its economy, like that of much of the rest of the state, has been based on the rich fossil fuel deposits that lie below Wyoming's mountains and high plains. But coal and gas aren't the only resources Carbon County enjoys in abundance. It's also one of the windiest spots in the country.
