Transmission developer Tres Amigas and Broadview Energy LLC have executed agreements that the companies say could facilitate the development and construction of up to 500 MW of wind generation in northeast New Mexico.

According to the companies, the agreement will enable Broadview, Tres Amigas' first customer, to deliver wind power for the next 25 years to California starting by year-end 2015.

Broadview is a utility-scale wind development project in Curry County, N.M., and Deaf Smith County, Texas. National Renewable Solutions is the manager/developer for Broadview, and the development's 20 MW first phase, Brahms Wind, is planned for operation in the first quarter of this year.

The companies note that the agreements are integral to the viability of Broadview's second phase, dubbed Broadview Energy KW.

Power from the wind farm is expected to be delivered over its interconnection with Tres Amigas by December 2015, the companies add.
