PNM will acquire and operate the transmission line shortly after commissioning is fully completed.

The Western Spirit Transmission line is enabling the construction of Pattern Energy’s suite of Western Spirit Wind power projects, which is scheduled for completion at the end of December 2021. Totaling more than 1,050 MW, the Western Spirit Wind projects represent the largest single-phase renewable power build out in U.S. history. The four wind projects that comprise Western Spirit Wind are located in Guadalupe, Lincoln and Torrance Counties in central New Mexico. Pattern Energy has more than 4,500 MW of New Mexico wind in operation or development, representing over $9.5 billion of planned investments.
