The Sagamore Wind Project is an opportunity to boost the local economy of Roosevelt County and to create jobs, all while generating clean, American made energy to meet New Mexico's growing electricity demand.
The project is located on approximately 150,000 acres of private and state land near Dora in southern Roosevelt County.
Wind power is the new cash crop for farmers and ranchers. Lease payments provide a steady stream of income when cattle and commodity markets fluctuate.
“I could not afford my current living situation without the Invenergy [wind lease] payments. The payments are a blessing.”

At peak construction, the Sagarmore Wind Project is expected to employ as many as 200-300 people. After construction, the project will employ 20-30 additional permanent operations and maintenance (O&M) staff.
“[Locals] want the job because they’ve lived there all their lives...[It] gave me the opportunity to stay here and make a good living.”
O&M Manager, Spring Canyon Energy Center
