Iberdrola Renovables Sells Dry Lake Wind Farm Phase-1 Output to SRP
Spanish clean power company Iberdrola Renovables has sold the output of the first phase of the commercial-scale Dry Lake wind project in Arizona, US, to electricity utility Salt River Project.
The Dry Lake wind project will be located approximately 18 miles northwest of Snowflake, Arizona, on a combination of private, state and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands.The project will be just east of Arizona State Highway 377 and Dry Lake, southwest of Holbrook and the I-40 corridor.
Dry Lake's Phase-1 will include approximately 30 wind turbines and is expected to generate up to 63MW of electricity, depending on final turbine selection.
Janet Napolitano, governor of the state of Arizona, said: "The Dry Lake wind project represents a significant financial investment in Arizona and Navajo County. It will help increase our renewable energy supplies without using water or adding carbon to the atmosphere."
