The Eastern New Mexico News reports officials celebrated Thursday the start of work on a new wind project in Grady, New Mexico.

The San Francisco-based Pattern Energy, an affiliate of Pattern Development, is helping construct the 221-megawatt project and it's expected to power around 90,000 homes each year.

Facility Manager Ben Givens said the new Grady Wind Farm is scheduled to be operational by mid-May of 2019.

The Grady Wind Farm is the latest wild project in New Mexico and is among several efforts statewide to decrease reliance on oil and gas.
