First Wind Farm Dedicated
Arizona’s first commercial-scale wind power project was dedicated at the Lake Wind Power Project.
Located in Navajo County, the Dry Lake Wind Power Project sits on a combination of private, state and federal lands. Approximately a third of the project is on the private Rocking Chair Ranch, with a third each on Arizona State Land Department and Bureau of Land Management public lands.
The project brings a new source of clean, renewable energy to the region while supporting the local economy through property tax payments to Navajo County and job creation.
Composed of 30 Suzlon S88-2.1 mw turbines, the Dry Lake Wind Power Project generates 63 mw of clean energy, enough power for more than 15,000 homes.
The Dry Lake Wind Power Project was developed and is operated by Iberdrola Renewables, the largest provider of wind power in the world.
