Bonding Authority

Diversifying and growing the Wyoming economy.

Within our statutory purview 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”. We have the ability to issue up to $1 Billion in bonds to finance transmission infrastructure and coal export facilities. WIA does not currently have the authority to issue a bond on generation projects.


When WIA’s bonding authority is used there is no cost and no risk to the State of Wyoming. Our bonds are sold on the private market to investors and any proceeds are used to finance projects.
