BLM advances large-scale New Mexico wind project

The Trump administration today moved forward on a wind project on public lands in New Mexico as it continues advancing major renewable energy projects for approval by the end of the year. The BLM released a final environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Borderlands Wind Project in Catron County, just east of the Arizona border, covering about 16,400 acres of BLM land and another 10,000 acres of state and private lands.
