Tempe, Ariz.-based utility Salt River Project (SRP) has agreed to purchase the entire output from Portland, Ore.-based Iberdrola Renewables' Dry Lake Wind Project.

The Dry Lake Wind Project will be located approximately 18 miles northwest of Snowflake, Ariz., on a combination of private, state and Bureau of Land Management public lands.

"The Dry Lake Wind Project represents a significant financial investment in Arizona and Navajo County," says Gov. Janet Napolitano, D-Ariz. "It will help increase our renewable energy supplies without using water or adding carbon to the atmosphere."

Dry Lake's Phase I will include approximately 30 wind turbines and is expected to generate up to 63 MW of electricity, depending on final turbine selection. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2009.
