Through our partnership with Pattern, our farm became more of a self-sustaining enterprise. We’ve benefited enormously from the project. We are very grateful to have it.

We Believe in New Mexico
Billions invested into New Mexico over the next decade
Pattern is already responsible for New Mexico’s largest renewable power investment and we are expanding. Once complete, we will have invested nearly $10 billion in New Mexico over a 10 year period.
What does this mean for New Mexico
We hire local people and we work with communities to create long-lasting partnerships for New Mexicans.
Wind energy is great for the rural community. Pattern putting in these wind turbines and transmission lines and adding to the income of ranchers is really keeping a lot of the ranches in their families. They’re not having to sell their cattle, they’re not having to sell their ranch. They’ve got enough supplemental income to get them through the rough years. The economics of rural New Mexico can get tough, especially for young people to go out and make a living. There’s not a lot of opportunities. I foresee some stability in the income over generations.

Each year we contribute millions of dollars through our Community Giving and Community Benefit Programs. Likewise, tax revenues from our projects fund schools and other local priorities, such as fire departments and other first responders.
Our Broadview and Grady Wind Power Facilities in Curry County, and Western Spirit and SunZia Wind projects in the central part of the state already generating billions in positive economic impact and put New Mexicans to work.
Our roads were in bad shape, but the funding from the wind farm, provided over the span of two decades, allows our communities and county to repair and maintain them for a long time to come.

Commitment to Education
Central to our commitment is support for education through programs such as the New Mexico’s Governor’s STEM Challenge, KidWind, and Mesalands Community College, which has supplied several wind turbine technicians for our New Mexico facilities.
