Allen Flats Wind Farm is located in a rural area known as “Allen Flats” on state trust land, the wind project is the first of this magnitude in Cochise County. Rummel Construction’s portion of the construction included grading of a three-mile access road, which was compacted and aggregate added to accommodate the large cranes and equipment brought onto the site. Rummel also excavated a quarter-million gallon pond (used for compacting the road, dust mitigation, and other construction activities). This was a fast track project completed in record time, and when completed will accommodate 28 turbines that will produce up to 51-megawatts of power. Although the site sits on 5760 acres of state trust land, only 220 acres was cleared for the wind farm.
