Wind, solar farm planned north of Flag

By Adrian Skabelund | AZ Daily Sun

After a decade, a new windfarm appears to be moving forward on an area about 30 miles north of Flagstaff.

The project, by the Florida-based company NextEra Energy Resources, hopes to bring about 61 wind turbines and between 400 and 600 acres of solar panels, as well as a battery storage facility, to an area east of Valle.
The turbines would have a maximum height of 614 feet from their base to the tip of the blade. The entire Babbitt Ranch Energy Center would generate a maximum of 160 megawatts of electricity.

The whole area of the project includes about 42,670 acres, a mix of private land owned by Babbitt Ranches and State Trust land. But during a virtual town hall meeting last month, project lead Wardah Abbasi said in total, the structures would only cover about 1,000 acres of the area.
