BLM seeking public input on New Mexico’s Borderlands Wind project  

Credit:  By Michelle Froese | November 6, 2018 | www.windpowerengineering.com ~~

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Socorro Field Office will hold a public meeting to accept written public comments, provide information, and answer questions related to the Borderlands Wind project.

Borderlands Wind, LLC (a subsidiary of NextEra Energy), is proposing a wind-powered electric generation facility in western Catron County, New Mexico. The Borderlands Wind Project would be built near Quemado, New Mexico, and the Arizona–New Mexico border.

Subject to the BLM’s approval, construction of the Borderlands Wind energy generation facility would commence in 2019, with generation and delivery of electricity to the grid by the end of 2020. When completed, the wind energy facility would operate year-round for up to 35 years.

The public comment period for this project will begin on November 9. You may submit comments or resource information related to the project by any of the following methods:

• Online here.
• Mail: Jim Stobaugh, National Project Manager, Bureau of Land Management, Nevada State Office, Borderlands Wind Project, 1340 Financial Blvd., Reno, NV 89520

For further information and/or to have your name added to our mailing list, contact Virginia Alguire at 575.838.1290, or e-mail valguire@blm.gov.
