Wind developer pays Boise for bike race bill

Associated Press Published: August 30, 2012

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho wind developer that's been tardy on some cycling sponsorship bills has made good on more than $27,500 owed Boise for charges related to the Exergy Tour.

Boise spokesman Adam Park says Exergy Development Group president James Carkulis delivered the check in person on Thursday, to pay for police, among other things, during the May 24-28 women's professional race.

The money includes Exergy's promised $1,000 contribution to a reward for recovering one team's stolen bikes.

Parks says Boise is pleased with Carkulis' payment, and looks forward to another race next year.

Exergy's tardy payments came as its business has grappled with regulatory uncertainty for Idaho alternative energy projects.

The company suspended $323 million in wind projects and faces a federal lawsuit from Virginia's AES Corp. for missing turbine payments.
