Pattern’s SunZia wind projects

 

Pattern’s SunZia Wind Projects continues our effort to tap some of the best wind in the world, our developments have a powerful generation profile with an evening peak that is a perfect complement to daytime solar and displaces the need for more expensive, ramping fossil fuels. Pattern’s SunZia Wind Projects completes our regional development by adding an additional 3,000 MW’s of development to our overall portfolio of wind in the region. This will bring our total to over 4,000 MW’s when combined with the Western Spirit Wind Project. This development will represent the largest wind farm in the Western Hemisphere, benefiting New Mexicans in numerous ways. Pattern’s SunZia Wind Projects are made possible by the SunZia Southwest Transmission Project which allows this wind to reach markets to the West. Combined, these projects will represent a nearly $6 billion investment in NM.
