Officials are gathering in Torrance County on Monday to celebrate the restart of construction on Avangrid Renewables' El Cabo Wind Farm.
The 56,000-acre project spans private property and state trust land. It will be made up of more than 140 wind turbines.
Supporters say the project is expected to provide at least $2 million in lease and payments in lieu of taxes each year over the 30-year life of the project.
Last year, Avangrid acknowledged that construction had slowed while transmission-related constraints were addressed. Construction first started in 2013 as companies raced to get projects underway to take advantage of federal incentives.
