Construction underway on Cimarron Solar facility

Officials from Tri-State, Southern Company, Turner Renewable Energy and First Solar gathered on June 9 for a groundbreaking ceremony to officially mark construction of the Cimarron Solar facility in northern New Mexico’s Colfax County.

The Cimarron Solar project will be among the nation’s largest solar photovoltaic plants when it begins commercial operation at the end of the year. The electricity generated at the facility, which will supply power equivalent to meet the needs of approximately 9,000 homes, will be delivered to electric cooperative members of Tri-State, which has a 25-year agreement to purchase the facility’s energy.

“Tri-State is committed to renewable energy in our resource planning that brings value to our member cooperatives across the four states we serve,” said Tri-State executive vice president and general manager Ken Anderson.
