Babcock & Brown and Arizona Public Service Co. (APS) have dedicated the Aragonne Mesa Wind Project, a 90 MW wind farm located 25 miles southwest of Santa Rosa, N.M. The project began energy production in December 2006.

A purchase power agreement (PPA) between APS and Babcock & Brown allows electricity produced from the wind project to be delivered to APS customers throughout Arizona. The PPA expanded APS' renewable portfolio from 16 MW - 10 MW geothermal, 6 MW solar - to 106 MW.

The project increased Babcock & Brown's wind generation in New Mexico from 80 MW to 170 MW. The company is developing 130 additional MW of wind energy as Phase II at Aragonne Mesa.
