Northeastern AZ. wind farm continues to grow

Arizona’s first wind energy farm continues to grow and soon will spin even more power.

Salt River Project says the latest addition to the Dry Lake Wind Farm northwest of Snowflake will double the power amount flowing out of the facility.

In Oct. 2009, 30 giant wind turbine towers, about 250 feet tall, began turning and producing electricity.

SRP says that 14 months later, Oregon-based wind energy developer Iberdrola Renewables has nearly doubled the number of wind turbines at Dry Lake as well as its energy capacity.

When completed, SRP says the expanded Dry Lake Wind Farm will provide electricity to nearly 20,000 typical residential homes in SRP’s service territory.
