SunZia Wind 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. SunZia Wind 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. SunZia Wind is 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.
~1000 jobs at peak construction
~40 full-time permanent jobs
3000+ MW total capacity
SunZia Wind will provide extensive economic benefits to the local area. From construction-related expenses to ongoing tax payments from the project, the revenues generated will help local governments and schools responsibly expand their services to their communities. Direct impacts from these projects are expected to top $5 billion during the life of the project.
SunZia Wind is dependent on the SunZia Southwest Transmission Project in order to get our product to market. We will be working with the local community as we get closer to construction regarding opportunities to engage local contractors and individuals.
