Nov 8, 2011 - Element Power US LLC on Tuesday announced the completion of a 50-MW wind project in Luna county, New Mexico.
The Macho Springs wind farm, which consists of 28 Vestas 1.8-MW turbines, will produce enough electricity to power around 14,000 households, the company estimates.
The facility's output will be bought by Tucson Electric Power under a long-term power purchase agreement.
Element Power, which is owned by private equity company Hudson Clean Energy Partners, developed and owns the project. Mortenson Construction acted as general contractor.
Element Power is also developing a solar farm that will also have capacity of 50 MW on an abutting site.
