Spring Valley Wind Project – 151.8 megawatts
Pattern Energy Group LP constructed the Spring Valley Wind project in 2012. The project is located on 7,673 acres of public lands in northern Spring Valley, approximately 30 miles east of Ely, Nevada.
However, its permanent footprint will only be about 77 acres of surface area, or about 1 percent of the total project area.
It is Nevada’s first utility-scale wind energy project. The project includes 66 Siemens 2.3 megawatt wind turbines.
