Construction started in New Mexico on what is described as the largest wind project in the Western Hemisphere that will transfer electrical power from the state to Arizona.

At the same time, GE Vernova, a business to be spun off by General Electric, said it will build hundreds of turbines for Pattern Energy’s SunZia Wind Project that is projected to come online in 2026.

The Associated Press reported GE Vernova will manufacture 674 turbines for the massive wind powered project. The announcement followed Pattern Energy’s announcement a few weeks ago that it had closed on $11 billion in financing for SunZia.
