Pattern Energy’s Corona Wind Center will help transform the energy economy of the American West. At more than 3,000 collective megawatts, the seven Corona Wind Center projects will be the most affordable, reliable, renewable power available to customers from California to New Mexico. Tapping some of the best wind in the world, this site has a powerful generation profile with an evening peak that is a perfect complement to daytime solar and displaces the need for more expensive, ramping fossil fuels. The first Corona Wind Center projects will come online by 2020, and the energy will ultimately reach markets by way of new and existing grid infrastructure, including the 345 kV Western Spirit line and the 500 kV SunZia Southwest Transmission Project.
On March 2018, Pattern Energy submitted a location control application to the PRC for the Corona Wind Projects to be located near Corona in Lincoln County. Western Spirit Wind and our SunZia Wind Projects are envisioned in the Corona Wind Projects. Materials related to this application can be found below.
