The largest wind installation in central New Mexico, the Western Spirit Wind project, is set to deliver power to the equivalent of 590,000 homes on completion, turbine supplier GE Renewable Energy announced on Thursday.
The project, an installation built by the southwestern utility Pattern Energy, will deliver more than 1,050 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy from four separate wind farms.
377 2-MW turbines from GE Renewable Energy will power the project, the company said.
Turbine deliveries have begun already, with commercial operations planned to start before the end of the year.
'The 377-turbine order, which includes a 10-year full-service agreement, will be capable of powering the equivalent of 590,000 homes,' the company stated.
