Pattern Energy Group has selected Quanta Services and Hitachi Energy to build its SunZia Transmission and Wind project, America's largest clean energy infrastructure project, enabling access to more than 3,500 megawatts of New Mexico wind power.
SunZia Transmission, a 550-mile, 525-kilovolt high-voltage direct current transmission line between central New Mexico and south-central Arizona, will open access to the western energy markets to SunZia Wind, the largest wind project in the Western Hemisphere. SunZia Transmission will utilize the same corridor as the Western Spirit Transmission line, which was developed and constructed by Pattern Energy.
The new wind generation is located in Torrance, Lincoln, and San Miguel counties in New Mexico, and the project will provide clean, reliable and affordable electricity across Western states.
“The SunZia project is changing the landscape for renewable energy, and we need to ensure we have the best team in place to help
