Leeward Renewable Energy (Leeward) has announced that it has completed construction of its two Aragonne projects, which included repowering of its existing Aragonne Wind project (Aragonne Repower) and the construction of the new Aragonne Mesa Wind project (Aragonne Mesa).
Located in Guadalupe County, New Mexico the projects will provide 200MW of wind power generation over a 20-year period to Arizona Public Service Company (APS) under a previously announced agreement, with the capacity to generate up to 235MW of renewable energy.
Collectively, the new projects are comprised of 86 GE wind turbines capable of generating more than three times the amount of power produced by the legacy Aragonne Wind project while using 60 percent less land. Additionally, 100 percent of the blades from the decommissioned Aragonne Wind turbines were recycled or reused, as were a majority of the other materials removed from service.
