ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - New Mexico is now sixth in the nation for generating electricity from the wind.
Construction is to begin in May on New Mexico’s latest wind farm near Roswell. The 120-megawatt San Juan Mesa wind farm will be 65 miles northeast of Roswell in southern New Mexico.
The farm, built by Padoma Wind Power, will be New Mexico’s third wind farm.
Xcel Energy has said it plans to buy electricity from the wind farm and then sell the electricity to its 106,000 eastern New Mexico customers.
