Logan’s Gap Wind is located in Comanche County, in the heart of Texas. Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market and sells 100% of its power output into the ERCOT market by way of a long-term power purchase agreement with Morgan Stanley.

Community

The facility will contribute an estimated $80 million in tax payments over 25 years, benefitting Comanche County and the Blanket, Comanche, and Mullin Independent School Districts. Through our Community Benefits Program, the facility will support the local Agency on Aging, the Salvation Army Food Assistance Program, the Park Enhancement Group, and Youth Council.

Throughout construction 250 workers were on site, reaching 550 during peak activity. 12 full-time employees now operate and maintain the facility with additional help hired for seasonal work.

Environment

Each year Logan’s Gap Wind generates enough clean energy to power 50,000 Texas homes. The facility annually conserves enough water to meet the needs of 9,000 Texans, and offsets CO2 equivalent of removing 153,000 cars from the road.

Technology

The facility reached commercial operations in 2015. Logan’s Gap Wind uses 87 2.3 MW Siemens turbines. They are all American made with the nacelles and hubs manufactured in Kansas, the blades in Iowa, and a majority of the towers from Broadwind in Abilene, Texas.
