QUEMADO, N.M. – The Bureau of Land Management will be holding a public meeting in Quemado, N.M., to discuss the Borderlands Wind Project.

Held Nov. 14, the meeting will also accept written public comments and provide information related to the project that proposes a wind-powered electrical generation facility on the Arizona-New Mexico border. The area in question would be south of U.S. Highway 60, near the border, on 40,348 acres of land.

“Borderlands Wind LLC (a subsidiary of NextEra Energy) is proposing a wind-powered electric generation facility in western Catron County, N.M.,” a release announcing the meeting read. “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.”

Public comment on the project opened Nov. 9. The public meeting will be held at the Quemado Elementary and High School beginning at 5 p.m.

For further information interested parties are directed to contact Virginia Alguire at 575-838-1290 or Valguire@blm.gov.
