"Big Bet on Wyoming Wind: Phil Anschutz's Latest $9 Billion Idea"

"Phil Anschutz -- who has made money out of everything from a well explosion to a failing railroad -- is looking to wager $9 billion on the fierce winds of Wyoming."

"Anschutz's Power Company of Wyoming is seeking to build the nation's largest wind farm and then ship the power to California over a 725-mile transmission line, the longest to be built in decades.

California is the West's biggest renewable-energy market and a vital one for the project. The problem is that officials there say they don't want Anschutz's electricity."
