National Renewable Solutions has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Hudson Revuelto Landowner Association (HLRA) to proceed with development on a 40,000 – 60,000-acre footprint, northeast of Tucumcari, in Quay County. This footprint has wind speeds +/- 8.8mps. Kerlin Rise represents an opportunity for 400+ MW of wind projects. Mesalands Community College has maintained a local data collection campaign in conjunction with the wind curriculum and has expressed its willingness to share met tower data with NRS in support of the development efforts.
The HRLA has 45-50 active members and controls approximately 30% of the projected footprint. The development area is served by a local Rural Electric Association, SPS (Xcel), and SPP transmission lines in the southern portion of the footprint. The project also has access to WAPA/Tri-State transmission lines to the north of the site.
In mid 2021, NRS was acquired by BlackRock Real Assets – Climate Infrastructure Group* (“BlackRock”) with the intention of accelerating the development of its pipeline of projects toward financing, construction, and operations. With NRS’ on-the-ground development and origination expertise and BlackRock’s capital markets support and global reach, we have positioned ourselves as a major player in the U.S. renewable energy market.
