Near House, NM
The first of the nine existing wind power plants in New Mexico is situation just outside House, NM. That plant, built in 2003, generates 204 megawatts of wind power. That is about 1/4 of all the wind power created in the state. Near the miles and miles and rows and rows of windmills is a service yard where blades, laying on their sides, wait to be installed. Like this ... on a beautiful clear day with just a few clouds drifting by.
