Wyoming Infrastructure Authority (WIA)

The WIA is an instrumentality of the State of Wyoming and was created in 2004 by the Wyoming State Legislature.

Our Mission: The WIA will diversify and expand the state’s economy by adding value to Wyoming’s energy resources and infrastructure for the benefit of Wyoming and the region.

Our Vision: The WIA will advance Wyoming’s Energy Strategy by promoting the value of Wyoming’s energy resources; supporting the necessary infrastructure; enhancing resource development and operation; and ensuring a credible and objective voice for Wyoming.

Within the statutory purview of the WIA is “advanced coal technology and advanced energy technology facilities. The facilities and related supporting infrastructure may include all facilities, structures and properties incidental and necessary or useful in the production or transmission of energy”. In addition, effective July 1, 2014, the responsibilities of the WIA include coal exports pursuant to HB 147 which was enacted in the 2014 Legislative Session.

In addition, the WIA has $1 billion in bonding authority to finance transmission and generation infrastructure.
