  • SunZia Wind and Transmission will combine to create the largest clean energy infrastructure project in United States history.

    SunZia will harness and deliver renewable energy, power critical to meeting the growing demand in the West and maintaining grid reliability.

New Mexico boasts some of the most abundant, constant wind energy resource in the United States. This resource is currently trapped due to the lack of transmission infrastructure. SunZia Transmission will carry this vast resource to areas with high demand for power, delivering fuel-free, affordable energy to Arizona and the Western US.
