SunZia Transmission


SunZia Transmission is a 500 kV transmission project that will connect and deliver energy in Arizona and New Mexico to population centers. This line will help meet the national growing demand for renewable energy and will accommodate the remaining Pattern’s SunZia wind projects. Pattern Energy is the anchor tenant for the 3,000 MW of transmission capacity for SunZia Transmission, and we are equally focused on the success of both transmission project and the wind developments.
