Broadview Wind power facility (“Broadview”) is a 324 MW wind project located 30 miles north of Clovis, New Mexico. Pattern Energy has committed to acquire interests in Broadview and associated independent 35-mile 345 kV Western Interconnect transmission line from Pattern Energy Group LP (“Pattern Development”) at commencement of commercial operations. Broadview has closed construction and term financing and the COD of the project is expected in early 2017.

Broadview will consist of 141 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines and will have the capacity to generate 324 MW of energy, the power equivalent to the annual energy usage of approximately 180,000 California homes. Broadview will be limited to 297 MW of injection capacity at the project’s transmission interconnection point.

Broadview has entered into two 20-year power purchase agreements with Southern California Edison (“SCE”), which has a BBB+/A2 credit rating, for sale of 100 percent of its output, up to a total of 297 MW, which has been factored into the project’s economics.
